6th Feb 2018 - 3rd Mar 2018
On the moor, nothing is what it seems. Things go missing. Things seem...different.
EVEN THOUGH IT’S DRIZZLING, I GO TO THE MOOR. THE SUN IS UP NOW, AND I LOVE LOOKING OUT OVER THE RIDGE IN THE EARLY MORNING. IT’S DIFFERENT TO HOW IT LOOKS AT NIGHT. DON’T YOU THINK? IT’S RAINED ALL WEEK, AND THE PEAT HAS RISEN. WHEN THE PEAT IS HIGH, THE ROCKS DISAPPEAR. THEY REAPPEAR GRADUALLY, AS IT GETS DRIER, LIKE TEETH GROWING OUT OF GUMS.
Bronagh has lived right at the heart of the moor for as long as she can remember. But recently she has started having the same dream over and over again - with the voices and the whispering. Is it trying to tell her something?
When a boy vanishes, Bronagh has to tell someone what she suspects, entangling herself and her boyfriend in a murder investigation. But how can anyone find the truth when the ground keeps shifting?
The Moor is a tense psychological thriller, part domestic drama, part folk tale, that pits Bronagh against her own past and present, dragging her, her baby daughter and those closest to them into something deeper than the marsh on the moor.
