The Moors

by Jen Silverman

Directed by Jules Odendahl-James
Produced by Manbites Dog Theater

Triangle Premiere:
February 22-March 10, 2018

A family quarrels. A governess arrives. A servant schemes. A hen falls from the sky. A hound hunts his prey.

A tale of desire, intrigue, and the importance of controlling one’s own narrative, as spinster sisters author their release from the strictures of manor life.

Jen Silverman’s decidedly modern take on the Romantics’ dark and brooding landscapes was a finalist for the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize. Join us for the Triangle premiere.

Featuring: Jessica Flemming, Faye Goodwin, Jessica Hudson, Tamara Kissane, Sarah Koop, Nick Popio
