THE MOORS. A hyper-theatrical and kinky homage to the Brontës ; a play about female power and what it is to write your own story.
From the company, Siren Theatre Company who made THE TROUBLE WITH HARRY this is a play of subversive edginess toppling the male-oppressed milieus of the Brontës and taking strong, passionate female characters to new heights.
Two sisters and a dog live on the bleak English moors. They dream of love, power and notoriety. The arrival of a 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 black comedy about love, desperation, and visibility, The Moors is a brilliant new work by Jen Silverman, a fresh new voice who takes chances.
