About The Event


Brontë: The play finds the sisters in 1845; Charlotte is writing Jane Eyre, Emily is writing Wuthering Heights and Ann is writing The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. Their brother Branwell returns home in disgrace. Plagued by alcohol and drug addiction, he has been dismissed after an affair with the mistress of the house he went to as a tutor. As he descends into alcoholism and insanity, bringing chaos to the house, his sisters write. This extraordinary play by Polly Teale evokes the real and imagined worlds of the Brontës, as the fictional characters come to haunt their creators.
