The Moors, a bold, theatrical satire by Jen Silverman, takes us on a wild ride through the beautiful and the dangerous while upending gender politics. Sisters Agatha and Huldey reside on the bleak English Moors. Their Mastiff has a bad case of ennui. The maid has strategic multiple personalities. A crash-landed Moor-Hen can’t remember anything. A young governess has just arrived from London. The rooms in the house all look strikingly similar. And no one can seem to find Master Branwell. This Brontë-inspired gothic is Grey Gardens meets American Horror Story meets Calvin & Hobbes. The rules are always changing, and that’s the only thing anyone can rely on.
Vinegar Tom, Caryl Churchill’s response to uncompromising systems of patriarchy both past and present, centers on unconventional women in a 17th century rural town. Their scandalous and inexcusable behavior includes sleeping with a stranger, owning an old cat, cursing at the neighbors, and disinterest in marriage and children. Steeped in a landscape of pride, poverty and prejudice, the question persists - what makes a witch? This play with music, born out of the second wave feminist movement of the 60's and 70’s, is The Crucible meets Oooo Hooo Witchay Woman meets Handmaid’s Tale.
