Moments is the story of Daniel and Ava, who at first glance have nothing in common.
He's 56, she's 25. He's a talker, she's a listener. But after a series of chance (and awkward) encounters, it's starting to look like they're becoming... friends?
The second play from award-winning writer Julia Cranney, Moments is a delicate, funny and moving exploration of modern loneliness and friendship in a big city.
Moments made its debut at The Hen and Chickens
as part of this year's Camden Fringe Festival.

'A quality script, beautifully delivered and charmingly
performed. This is a company that clearly takes a lot of
pride in their work and it certainly pays off –
this is new writing at its best.
A strong and safe second outing for a new company
that I would highly recommend.' (Spy In the Stalls)
'Moments gives the lonely a voice. The result is a
very relatable, moving, and humorous piece which has
just the right amount of emotion without feeling
unnecessarily sentimental' (Views From the Gods)
'Moments is a witty, one-act play which explores
loneliness in a big City... Julia Cranney’s script is sparky
and allows both actors to demonstrate excellent comic timing... An enjoyable thought-provoking play with a lovely final scene which should ensure you leave the theatre with a smile on your face' (London Theatre1)
'Julia Cranney’s new play Moments reminds us that a sudden change in circumstances can mean that even the most well-established Londoner can find themselves all alone.... Cranney captures the awkwardness of [the characters] interactions well, but gives both a sharp humour that makes the audience root for them... Moments is an enjoyably sweet, appropriately cynical and sensitive tale about two people finding much-needed solace in the big city, and it may give you hope that your next great friendship could be sitting right beside you on the bus.'
