About the play:

Two sisters and a dog live out their lives on the bleak English moors, dreaming of love and power.  The arrival of a hapless governess and a moor-hen set all three on a strange and dangerous path.  The Moors is a dark comedy about love, desperation, and visibility.


Five female-identifying , one male-identifying.  We embrace nontraditional casting.
