Black box series continues with regional premier of ‘The Moors’

The Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities continues the third season of its Black Box Repertory on Feb. 22, with the regional premiere of “The Moors” — a dark comedy propelled by a strong dose of absurdity in a tale of love and desperation directed by Anthony Powell. This production is underwritten by Diana and Mike Kinsey. 

Performances of “The Moors” take place Wednesdays at 1 p.m., Thursday through Saturday at 7:30 p.m., Sunday at 2 p.m., and select Saturday matinées at 2 p.m., through May 18. Audience engagement events, pre-show chats with members of the cast, and audience talk backs are held for nearly every performance.

In “The Moors,” 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 tells a humorous and subversive story about love and the instability of gender roles.

The Moors is presented by members of the Arvada Center’s Black Box Repertory Company of actors, directors, technical artists and designers. Audiences will see the repertory actors throughout the season in a variety of roles.

In addition to director Anthony Powell, the Arvada Center creative team includes Brian Mallgrave as scenic design, Jon Olson as lighting design, Jason Ducat as sound design, Meghan Anderson Doyle as costume design, and Lynne Collins as artistic director of plays.

The cast features Emma Messenger as Agatha, Jessica Robblee as Huldey, Regina Fernandez as Emilie, Annie Barbour as Marjory, Geoffrey Kent as The Mastiff, Emily Van Fleet as A Moor-Hen, and Daniel Crumrine as Madeline.
