Will you marry – BANG!
Simultaneous marriage proposals send the mighty heroines from the 19th-century novels of Louisa May Alcott, Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters running to the mythical moors to ponder their gender-normative futures.
As their could-be betrothed pursue them, The Moor Wars begin along with a barrage of wordplay, heartache, and anachronistic wit. When the laughter dies, the play ends in beautiful prose not unlike the style that Alcott, Austen, and the Bronte’s would have penned.
This contemporary and contemplative comedy by rising star playwright Jaclyn Backhaus demands bold actors who make big choices.
