What is it?
Catch the world premiere of Catherine Lucie’s The Moor – a tense psychological thriller set in a place where nothing is as it seems – at the Old Red Lion Theatre in London, from Tuesday 6th February to Saturday 3rd March.
Bronagh has lived at the heart of the moor for as long as she can remember, but recently she has started having the same troubling dream. Are the voices trying to tell her something? When a boy vanishes, Bronagh has to tell someone what she suspects, entangling herself and her boyfriend in a murder investigation.
Haunting and touching in equal parts, The Moor pits Bronagh against her own past and present, dragging her, her baby daughter and those closest to them into something deeper than the marsh on the moor.
Presenting a female character with nuance, depth and urgency, who is emotionally and intelligently charged, Lucie explores what people are capable of when isolated and under pressure, ensnaring and unsettling the audience.
Part domestic tale, part folk tale, the play will use inventive design to create an ever-changing landscape reflecting Bronagh’s shifting mental state and the shifting ground of the moor.
The cast will include Jill McAusland (Call the Midwife, BBC1; Arms and the Man, Watford Palace Theatre), Oliver Britten (Alice Adventures Underground, VAULT Festival) and Jonny Magnanti (Three Winters, National Theatre).
The Moor is directed by Blythe Stewart (Skin a Cat) and supported by an all-female creative team.
