Bridge Street Theatre Presents THE MOORS By Jen Silverman
Bridge Street Theatre presents Jen Silverman's THE MOORSComing soon to Catskill's adventurous Bridge Street Theatre is the second production in its 2019 Subscription Series - "The Moors", a darkly comic work from Jen Silverman, one of the hottest young playwrights in the U.S. today. The play opens with a "Pay What You Will" preview on May 30 and plays Thursdays through Sundays until June 9 in the theatre's intimate 84-seat Mainstage in the Village of Catskill.
Two spinster sisters, their possibly schizophrenic maid, and a melancholy and philosophical mastiff spend their days and nights dreaming of love and power in a ruinous old estate on the desolate, fog-enshrouded English heath (though, oddly, all of them seem to speak with American accents, including the dog). When the arrival of a hapless governess (even though no children are in evidence) and a crash-prone moor hen upset the already precarious balance of the household, romances bloom, alliances are formed, lies are unmasked, loyalties shift, and the tension mounts until finally - someone reaches the breaking point! Tracy Liz Miller directs April Armstrong, Bonnie Black, Lori Evans, Kate McMorran, Molly Parker Myers, and Shane Sczepankowski in this mysterious, menacing, and savagely funny postmodern mash-up of the Bronte Sisters and Samuel Beckett. Costumes are by Jennifer Anderson, Sets and Lights by John Sowle, Sound by Carmen Borgia, and the Production Stage Manager is Joshua Martin. This production was made possible in part by generous underwriting support from Jay Lesenger.
