“The moors are a savage place, and we who live here, despite our attempts to cling to a modicum of civilization, we find ourselves often forced to contend with savagery.”
A young governess arrives at a mansion on the bleak and windswept moors – but there’s no sign of the child she’s been employed to look after...
The Moors is playwright Jen Silverman’s gripping Gothic story about isolation, ambition, and the struggle to be seen. Inspired by the letters of Charlotte Brontë, The Moors is an irreverent period drama all about the present, a macabre thriller with a queer thread running through its centre, and a delightfully dark comedy perfect for when the nights are drawing in.
This is the UK professional premiere of The Moors. The production is directed by Phil Bartlett, artistic director of the Hope Theatre. Set and costume designs are by Sophia Pardon, lighting design is by Jonathan Simpson, and sound design & composition is by Julian Starr, with music by Daniel Kluger. The producer is Ella Dale for the Hope Theatre. The Moors is a Hope Theatre in-house production.

"Boldly directed by Phil Bartlett... the actors captivate with lines that waver between humour and horror... There is great imagination and intrigue here and it is eminently entertaining" (The Guardian)
