Relative Theatrics Free Reading of THE MOORS by Jen Silverman @ UW Art Museum

With partial funding by Wyoming Humanities, Relative Theatrics presents a free reading of THE MOORS by Jen Silverman May 16, 2019 at 6:00pm at the UW Art Museum beside Sharon Louden’s ‘Windows’ installation. The reading features Bailey Patterson, Makayla Buszek, Jenna Blazek, Danni Horwitz, Corinne Landy, and Aaron King and is part of Read, Rant, Relate: Igniting Conversation through Theatre. A post-reading discussion will be led by Patrick Konesko.

About the play:
Come explore the beautiful and the dangerous in Jen Silverman’s THE MOORS: Two sisters and a dog live out their lives on the bleak English moors, dreaming of love and power. The arrival of a hapless governess and a moor-hen set all three on a strange and dangerous path. The Moors is a dark comedy about love, desperation, and visibility.
“Truly clever and intelligent. You really ought to see this.” – The New York Times
“Acerbic, funny […] brilliant stuff. The Moors is first-rate entertainment.” – New Haven Review

Read, Rant, Relate is a free play-reading program funded in part by the Wyoming Humanities. Experience a new piece of contemporary dramatic literature every other month with Relative Theatrics. Participants will engage directly with modern plays by listening to actor led readings of the texts, then joining discussions breaking down the thematic elements of the works and their relevance to today’s society.
Additional support comes from a new partnership with the UW Art Museum.
