Theatre at Bridgewater College will present The Moors by Jen Silverman from Wednesday, Nov. 2, through Saturday, Nov. 5, in Cole Hall on the College’s campus. The show will begin at 8 p.m. each night.
Silverman’s The Moors tells the story of two sisters and a dog that live out their lives on the bleak English moors dreaming of love and power. The arrival of a hapless governess and a moorhen set all three on a strange and dangerous path. The Moors is a dark comedy about love, desperation and visibility.
