Casting has been announced for You On The Moors Now, a production of Theater Reconstruction Ensemble at HERE. Written by Jaclyn Backhaus and directed by John Kurzynowski, the production will play from February 13-28.

You on the Moors Now is described as "a theatrical examination of four well-known literary heroines of the 19th century and their shocking rejection of the men who so ardently loved them. What results is a confluence of love, anger, grief, haunting, bloody battles and single tears shed by an ensemble of actors struggling to reconcile the romantic confines of the past with their own contemporary ideas of courtship. You on the Moors Now takes everything you’ve ever learned about love, gleaned from the pages of Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, and Little Women, and puts it somewhere in the tall grasses, hidden from view, where only the truly brave will ever traverse to earn it."

The ensemble includes Harlan Alford, Michael Barringer, Nathaniel Basch-Gould, Sam Corbin, Eben Hoffer, Lena Hudson, Emily Marro, Preston Martin, Anastasia Olowin, Jon Riddleberger, Kelly Rogers, Claire Rothrock, Patrick Scheid, and Lauren Swan-Potras.

The production team includes Joseph Wolfslau (set and costume design), Marika Kent (lighting design), Alex Hawthorn (sound design), and Reed Whitney (producer).
