The Moors by Jen Silverman

Can a mastiff love a moor-hen?

Based on the lives of the famous Brontë sisters, this delightfully dark comedy by Jen Silverman satirizes stiff Victorian mores and the romantic escapism they induce.

Set on the bleak Yorkshire Moors of northern England, THE MOORS centers on two spinster sisters living alone in a manor house with their maid and mastiff. The introduction of a governess and a crash-landing moor-hen, prompts explorations of visibility, isolation and desire among the manor’s residents and the impact of a place both dangerous and beautiful on the human psyche.


THE MOORS received praise from The New York Times on its world premiere production at Yale Repertory: “’The Moors,’ rolls out like the stuff of dreams, with telling passages heightened by surrealistic flights of fancy — including that mastiff and hen in an archetypally pleasing, you-really-ought-to-see-this parable.”

Texas Playwrights Festival

3 Plays, 3 Playwrights, 6 Readings

Que Será, Giant Monster 

by Brad McEntire 
Charles is having a very rough day. It only gets worse when he runs into an ex who is, herself, having a ridiculously rough day. The giant monster destroying the city doesn’t bode well, either.

Ganymede 

by Ben Schroth 
Ganymede, is the story of two brothers—one abducted by space aliens and one left behind by the visitors. Enforcers come to take the boy back and, if not for the assistance of a nosy neighbor, our hero would never find love.

Montgomery 

by Stephen Brown 
Megan hates country singer Rick Montgomery, so she and her friend Kimmy have decided tonight’s concert will be his last. As they run from the cops, songs will be sung, people will be shot, and girls will discover the difficulties of revenge.

EVOCATION TO VISIBLE APPEARANCE

FREE Staged Reading presented by Horse Head Theatre Co.


EVOCATION TO VISIBLE APPEARANCE by Mark Schultz

FREE Staged Reading Presented by Horse Head Theatre Co.


Saturday, July 21, 2018 at 8pm

Chelsea Market Theatre - aka Classical Theatre Company

4617 Montrose Blvd. #100, Houston, TX 77006


Save your seat! This event is free and first come first serve. Register for FREE TICKETS here.


You wanna know what the future looks like? Samantha does. Seventeen, maybe pregnant and hopelessly alone, Sam can’t fight the feeling that a dark force is pushing her towards disaster. Her dad means well but is literally (and figuratively) asleep -- her big sister doesn’t mean well and isn’t apologizing for it - and her boyfriend? He’s got a bright future that does NOT include Sam or their hypothetical unborn child. Then Sam meets Hudson, a Satan-loving heavy-metal wannabe musician, who seems to understand her pain -- and more importantly, shares her crippling sense of impending doom. Clouds gather, lightning strikes and heavy metal rocks in this daring new musically-charged play about the void in all of us.



Playwright Mark Schultz wrote this story based on a bold, strange premise: “...what would it be to write a play that wasn’t about the Devil, but somehow was the Devil?” Curious what that means? Let Horse Head show you this July.




This programming is rated PG-13 for mature themes. Children under age 16 should be accompanied by an adult.




General Admission is free and open to the public. Seating is first come first serve for ticket holders. While this event is free to the public, it is not free to produce. Horse Head needs your support to continue as a vibrant nonprofit organization and humbly asks that those who can donate to our cause.
