Irish Rep Will Present Reading of The Moors Featuring Bianca Amato, Hannah Cabell and More
23 Jul 2014
The Irish Repertory Theatre will continue its eighth season of its Reading Series with The Moors by Jen Silverman, directed by Jackson Gay (These Paper Bullets at Yale Rep) July 28 at 3 PM.
The free reading, according to press notes, is, "a dark comedy about love, desperation and visibility...[where] two sisters and a dog live out their lives on the bleak English moors and dream of love and power. The arrival of a hapless governess and a moor-hen set all three on a strange and dangerous path."
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
