Monster on the Moon

This photo tribute is about Richard Kalinovski’s play Monster on the Moon, starring Dimitris Tarlow and Tamila Koulieva

Richard Kalinoski has been internationally acclaimed as the author of Beast on the Moon, an intimate drama about an Armenian immigrant couple in Milwaukee whose marriage is haunted by the 1915 genocide.

Essentially, Beast is a standard memory play with a theme of redemption through hope and a willingness to move forward instead of bitterly and obsessively clinging to the past. The narrator, an old man known only as Gentleman who turns out to be more than a bystander or witness to their life, adds to the viewer's sense of flipping through an old photo album and watching a page here and a page there spring to life.

Although not of Armenian heritage himself, Kalinoski was married to an Armenian woman for seven years.

The play has been translated into 12 languages, produced in 17 countries around the world, and showered with awards.
