Something for the Weekend Theatre Company presents

The Man on the Moor

A huge hit from The Edinburgh Fringe!

On 12th December 2015, an elderly-looking gentleman was found dead on Saddleworth Moor.  He was carrying no ID.  In his pockets were just £130 in cash and return train tickets from London from the previous day.

Despite a national campaign, he remained unidentified.  He appeared to have no family, no friends, and no home.  He didn't even have a name.  Who was this man?  Why did he seemingly travel 200 miles to die?  And why did nobody seem to miss him?

Forty different people reached out to claim ‘the man on the moor’ as their missing husband, father or brother.  These people are ‘the left behind’.  Those who pick up the pieces when someone they love leaves and simply never comes home again.  This is their story.

Written and performed by Max Dickins, this powerful drama looks at how people come to disappear and the impact on those they leave behind.
