Three major raves already in!
A play that unfolds new layers with almost every scene. One of the best ensembles on the Austin stage. A phenomenally talented cast. A dark, bizarre, yet still hilarious night of theater.
- Austin American Statesman

An engaging cocktail of Gothic mystery, modern absurdity, and stunning surprises . . . Unforgettable . . . For 25 years, Hyde Park Theatre has consistently produced theatre that is thought-provoking, edgy, and of highest quality. The Moors is no exception.
- Austin Chronicle

Darkly delightful . . . The cast here is terrific. The standout performance goes to Jess Hughes as the rather unstable sister Huldey [who] makes the most of the material she is given ending in a riotously funny unhinged concert moment. Wonderfully twisted and a great evening of hearty belly laughs that make it a good way to forget the week's troubles.
- Broadway World Austin

Picture the Brontë sisters, but with American accents. Picture a large dog falling in obsessive love with a small bird. Picture a dark, satirical comedy that will haunt you like a strange dream. Come see one of the first productions in the country of a play The New York Times called "inspired . . . rolls out like the stuff of dreams . . . This is the reason we go to theater."
