Music by Andrew McNaughton
Directed by Andrew Gray & Emma Hibbert

Footprint Theatre performed five public shows at Nethercote Hall and Wolumla Hall in November 2011 by special arrangement with Matt Cameron c/- Currency Press.

It begins like a fairytale…Little Ruby Moon went to visit her grandma at the end of the cul-de-sac one day and never came back. Ruby’s parents Sylvie and Ray are haunted by her disappearance. Their evenings are spent compulsively putting together the few clues they have in the hope of solving the puzzle. Then one day, a mysterious parcel arrives on the doorstep…maybe their neighbours hold the key?


An Australian thriller from the dark heart of suburbia, Ruby Moon was on the 2011 NSW Higher School Certificate Drama curriculum.
