Chicago Premiere

On the wind-blown, desolate moors, two sisters and their mastiff scheme to wrest their destinies from the systems and the savage land around them. A governess is summoned and a moor-hen drops in, forcing all to ask what price they might pay for autonomy and for love. Inspired (perhaps) by certain 19th-century gothic romances and the sisters who wrote them this savage comedy disrupts the conventions of status and visibility.
