Stunning, stockingless, ruthless in her youth, Cleo Singer arrives in Ben Stark's dental practice and turns his married, humdrum world upside down. She promises passion, escape, if only he knew how. But Stark is not alone in his frustrated dreams and in those stifling, shared offices there's rivalry over a woman discovering life, a woman who's hungry for expression and for love. And she's no pushover, she's looking for the real deal.
Why don't you suddenly ride away, an airplane, a boat! Take a rocket to the moon! Explode!
Written in 1938 by Clifford Odets, the American master of dazzling, acerbic New York repartee, Rocket to the Moon puts opportunity in the way of a quietly desperate man and waits.
None of you can give me what I'm looking for: a whole full world, with all the trimmings.

The Lyttelton - named after Oliver Lyttelton, Viscount
Chandos, whose parents were among the earliest effective campaigners for the
National Theatre and who was himself its first chairman - is a proscenium
theatre, conventional in its basic shape though not in the excellence of its
sightlines and acoustics.
