The Moors

A cleverly crafted black comedy about love, desperation, and visibility

As part of the 2019 Mardi Gras Festival, Seymour Centre presents the Sydney premiere of Jen Silverman’s dark comedy The Moors with award-winning director Kate Gaul.

After being lured by mysterious letters, seemingly naïve Emilie takes the position as governess in a household on the forbidding moors. Upon arriving, she discovers the stern and domineering Agatha along with her needy and flighty sister Hudley, a dog, and a glowering maid who isn’t always who or what she seems. The arrival of the governess sets this odd assembly on a strange and increasingly bizarre path.

Inspired by the lives and works of the beloved but little understood Brönte sisters, The Moors is a cleverly-crafted, black comedy about love, desperation, the way women are seen and the space they occupy with relevancy to our current cultural climate.

From the company who thrilled audiences in 2017 with The Trouble with Harry comes a play of subversive edginess toppling the male-oppressed milieus of the Brontës and taking strong, passionate female characters to new heights.
