The Moors

 

Sierra Stages and the Miners Foundry will present The Moors on Wednesday, January 22 at 7:30pm.  Written by Jen Silverman and directed by Laura LeBleu, The Moors is the next installment of Theater By the Book, a series of informal play readings for the community.

Two sisters (and a melancholy mastiff) live in a ruinous old house on the bleak and fog-enshrouded English moors, dreaming of love and power. When a hapless governess (and a crash-prone moor-hen) arrive out of nowhere, lies are unmasked, loyalties shift, and all are set on a strange and dangerous path until finally – someone reaches the breaking point! ​A mysterious, menacing, and savagely funny mash-up – as though the Brönte Sisters had been dropped into a comedic production of a play by Samuel Beckett.

Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the performance begins at 7:30 p.m. 

Admission is free with a $10 suggested donation
