What's On

The Moors
 

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

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 Seymour 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.

 

Venue: Seymour Centre - cnr City Rd and Cleveland Street, Chippendale
Dates: Thursday 07 February 2019 – Friday 01 March 2019
Bookings: (02) 9351 7940
