THE PLAY:

“…a feisty ensemble delivers a laugh-out-loud satire of Gothic romance with a feminist twist and a left-arm hug to the Bronte sisters” – Martha Heimberg, theatrejones.com


THE CHARACTERS:

AGATHA—Elder spinster sister. Spidery. Dangerous. Powerful.
HULDEY—Younger spinster sister. She has a diary. She wants to be famous.
EMILIE—The governess. A romantic with a sweet face.
MARJORY—The scullery maid. Down-trodden. Strategic.
A MOOR-HEN—A small chicken. Practical and very present-tense.
