The Moors - 2017 - Off-Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

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.

Phil Bartlett presents the British première with a sinister wink and eerie humour, but the text is a mismatch of gothic tropes and too unsure of its identity for the production to come together well. It's astonishing how the narrative lack of focus is as prominent as the precision of the direction and technical side of the show is.
