Two sisters and a depressed Mastiff dog live out their lives on the bleak English moors. The women spend their days dreaming of love and power until the arrival of a hapless governess and a moor-hen set all three on a wild new path. Playwright Jen Silverman turned the world of the Bronte sisters on its head, in a humorous (and subversive) story about love and desperation.
