Siren Theatre Co and Seymour Centre present:

A hyper-theatrical and kinky homage to the Brontës; this play is about female power and what it is to write your own story. Two sisters and a dog live on the bleak English moors, and 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. From the 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.

“The Moors is a queer reckoning of, and homage to, the Victorian gothic. Kinkily erotic, dreamlike and twisted, this Brontë sisters subversion for the modern age erupts the “dangerous desires” that for centuries went overwhelmingly untold..” - Kate Prendergast, Audrey Journal
