The Moors plunges us into the very serious world of the Brönte sisters: grand houses, traditional families, England in the 1800s. Wait— what? Nobody in The Moors talks like that, and there’s barely a house— we can’t even tell what room we’re in, or who the maid is. How did Wuthering Heights get to be funny? The only constant is turmoil as passionate women conspire to take control of their own lives. Emotions and desires run high, especially for the most introspective of all the characters: the dog.
“This black comedy by American writer, Jen Silverman, is a homage to the Brontës and a gothic pastiche in one.” – The Guardian

“With its quizzical tone, The Moors establishes a world of shifting possibility—nothing is as it seems, and nothing will change, but everything will be different.” – New Haven Review
“A disorienting mix of gothic tropes turned sideways, the patriarchy turned upside-down, talking animals turned to romance, and a chiming clock that marks time in the 1840s, the present, and no time at all.” – Isthmus
