Jen Silverman's The Moors opens today, February 7, in Sydney, Australia:
Siren Theatre Co & Seymour Centre present
The Moors
by Jen Silverman
Seymour Centre, University of Sydney
7 Feb - 1 Mar 2019

Two sisters and a dog live on the bleak English moors, and dream of love, power and notoriety. The arrival of a governess, the pointed schemes of a scullery maid, and the musings of a moorhen set this odd assembly on a strange and dangerous path. A cleverly crafted black comedy about love, desperation, and visibility, The Moors is a brilliant new work by Jen Silverman, a fresh new voice who takes chances.

From the company who made The Trouble with Harry this is a play of subversive edginess toppling the male-oppressed milieus of the Brontës and taking strong, passionate female characters to new heights.
