About the show

The Moors is a dark comedy about love, desperation, and visibility. 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 running time is 1 hour 45 minutes.
