Charlotte, Emily and Anne Brontë are three of the most well-known sisters in literary history. This play reveals both the real and imagined worlds of these women, as their fictional characters are lifted from the page and brought to life; to haunt both them and the audience.
As we move back and forth in time, we see how the family is affected by their desperate desire to escape their mundane reality and we witness their brother’s descent into alcoholism and insanity. Finally, we begin to realise what may have inspired them to write some of the most powerful and passionate fiction of all time.
