Bernie and Mikey's Trip to the Moon
About Trip to the Moon
With Stephanie Gould, Margo Singaliese, Forrest Malloy, Jordan Lage, Ismenia Mendes, Stephen D'Ambrose, and Benjamin Rosloff
Bernie and Mikey are perched on the edge of adulthood—a sister and brother trapped between the lives they crave and the circumstances they were born into. The children of a working class Italian family in 1990s Chicago, Mikey is torn between unrealized potential and loyalty to his sister, while Bernie, living with a cognitive disability, longs to find her voice but faces a world unwilling to listen.
The world premiere debut of actor-turned-playwright Scott Aiello, Bernie and Mikey's Trip to the Moon is a heart-wrenching comedy about one family's coming of age, as they reckon with what they're willing to sacrifice to protect one another—and what they won't.
