'...goes some way to setting right the many myths and easy answers that seem to have grown round the Bronte family. Above all, with its honest and vigorous humour, it banishes the gloom.' The Stage

Against the backdrop of a dark, remote northern town, three remarkable young women live their lives brightly.

Haworth 1840s, in a gloomy parsonage where there are neither curtains nor comforts, Charlotte, Anne and Emily Brontë light up their world with outspoken wit, aspirations, dreams and ideas.

Anyone who has read a Brontë novel cannot fail to be stirred by their overwhelming humanity, charged emotion and brooding and prescient unease with the status quo.

With exquisitely drawn characterisations, a nod to Chekhov and a touch of poetic license, this pearl of a play evokes with piercing clarity the life and distinct personalities of these three spirited individuals.

Watch an interview with the writer, Blake Morrison, and members of the company.
