Theatre Three Mounts Comical and Creepy New Play "The Moors"
DALLAS, TX: Just in time for Halloween, the stage at Theatre Three takes a delightfully dark turn with Jen Silverman’s fearless and whimsical new work, The Moors. Directed by Garret Storms, this disarmingly funny, fresh play with music delivers twists and turns that will keep audiences on the edge of their seats. The Moors runs October 25th through November 18th on the theater’s Norma Young Arena Stage (2800 Routh Street #168, Dallas, TX). Tickets range from $10-50 and are on sale at www.Theatre3Dallas.com. Tickets are also available by phone at 214.871.3300, option #1 and in-person at the Theatre Three Box Office.
Two Victorian-era sisters and their languid mastiff mutt live out their days on the vast and desolate landscape of the English moors. While one sister plots and plans, the other longs for a life of fame and glory. The winds shift when an eager, young governess arrives on the scene and challenges the very foundation the manor is built upon, setting its inhabitants on a strange and dangerous path. As the fog rolls in and the mists begin to breathe, maids shift allegiances and hens fall from the sky in this eerie and amusing tale of a surreal world that overturns the ideals of power structures, gender, and class with a cheeky vivacity.
With some smoke and mirrors setting the scene, director Garret Storms and his design team have crafted an immersive experience to greet audiences as they enter the enticingly eccentric theatre lobby. Guests are invited to arrive early for tricks and treats at the T3 concessions bar, or to lounge amongst the patrons, both past and present, who haunt the halls.
With a Gothic flair and a modern appeal, The Moors is inspired by the lives and works of the 19th century author/sister trio, Charlotte, Emily, and Anne Brontë and includes references both literary and biographical. "It's neither an adaptation nor a parody," author Jen Silverman commented. "It's about how we are shaped by landscapes around us — our longing to be seen, our longing to be loved."
The cast of The Moors is comprised of Emily Scott Banks as Agatha, Mikaela Krantz as Huldey, Vanessa DeSilvio as Emilie, Jenny Ledel as Marjory, Thomas Ward as Mastiff, and Felicia Bertch as Moor-Hen.
The Moors takes the stage from October 25th – November 18th, 2018, with performances on Thursdays at 7:30 PM, Fridays at 8:00 PM, Saturdays at 8:00 PM, and Sundays at 2:30 PM. A special “hooky matinee” is scheduled for Wednesday, November 7th at 2:00 PM and a single Saturday matinee on November 17th at 2:30 PM.
