In “1840s…ish” Victorian England, the world of the Brontë sisters and gothic romance, a governess arrives at a bleak mansion on the isolated moors, embarking on a journey which will forever change her life and the lives of everyone in the household. But this is not your average period piece.
This darkly comedic and twisted play, fresh from its first production in 2016, “is about the present,” as playwright Jen Silverman states.
The Moors explores what happens when the men have left the roost and the women (and animals) are free to chase their darkest desires.
