You on the Moors Now
Written by Jaclyn Backhaus
Directed by Devon de Mayo
September 9 - October 30, 2016 at the Den Theatre's Heath Main Stage
This crazy, funny show sets heroines from the 19th-century novels of Louis May Alcott, Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters, in a mythical place of Moors. When our heroines receive proposals of marriage, they decide to escape. The men wage war on the women starting the Moors Wars. Jaclyn Backhaus’ ultimately moving and inventive play ends in beautiful prose like a chapter from the books these women originated. Directed by Devon de Mayo.
