The Moors by Jen Silverman opens tomorrow, November 8, in San Diego:
West Coast Premiere
The Moors
By Jen Silverman
Directed by Lisa Berger

Production Sponsors: Carol Ann Flanagan and Bob Haskell

November 9 – December 10, 2017 // Opening November 18

Among the bleakest of moors, two spinster sisters dwell in their aggressively gloomy mansion with their brother, their mastiff and their maid-in-waiting. When a governess arrives, her presence threatens to unleash lethal secrets and raging desires in a home held together by lies and etiquette. A radical riff on 19th century romantic novels and the sisters who conceived them, The Moors is a riotous and wild comedy pulsating with vivid, macabre glee that has more in common with the present than the period.

San Diego Union-Tribune:
One of four West Coast premieres (plus a world premiere) that the ever-enterprising Diversionary is staging this season, “The Moors” is Jen Silverman’s darkly comic riff on 19th-century romantic novels. (Think the Brontë sisters and their stories of the lonely and lovelorn.) (James Hebert)
