The Duke
229 West 42nd Street New York, NY 10036

Dreaming of love and power, two sisters and their dog live out their lives on the bleak English moors, the vast, desolate landscape of northern England. With the arrival of a hapless governess and a moor-hen, lies are revealed and loyalties shift as all are set on a strange and dangerous path. Inspired by the lives and work of the Brontë sisters, Silverman's wild, rugged and inhospitable moors become a backdrop against which women can dream of a better life, and a metaphor for the freedom and strength wherein people can reinvent themselves. Escaping thetrappings of a seemingly Victorian setting, The Moors invites the audience to travel into a surreal world that subverts those ideals of power structures, gender and class.
