About The Moors
Two Victorian era sisters (Agatha and Huldey) and their languid mastiff live out their lives in a manor house on the bleak English moors. Like any apt Gothic tale, they dream of forbidden love, power, and notoriety. The arrival of a hapless governess, the pointed schemes of a scullery maid, and the musings of a moorhen set this odd assembly on a strange and dangerous path. A cleverly crafted dark comedy about love, desperation, and visibility, THE MOORS is a brilliant new work by Jen Silverman, a fresh new voice who takes chances. A Play with Music.
