Now Playing

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.
