Diversionary Theatre presents the West Coast premiere of "The Moors," a play by Jen Silverman.

Among the bleakest of moors, two spinster sisters dwell in their aggressively gloomy mansion with their brother, their mastiff and their maid-in-waiting. When a governess arrives, her presence threatens to unleash lethal secrets and raging desires in a home held together by lies and etiquette. A radical riff on 19th century romantic novels and the sisters who conceived them, "The Moors" is a riotous and wild comedy pulsating with vivid, macabre glee that has more in common with the present than the period.

The play runs Nov. 9 through Dec. 10, 2017. For additional details call the box office at (619) 220-0097.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending.
