Synopsis

This unique performance piece, which can be presented book-in-hand or fully staged, highlights the extraordinary and eccentric lives of the Bront‘ family—most notably Charlotte and Emily, the authors of Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights. Using actual letters, poetry and selections from their printed works, the audience journeys to the mysterious world of Haworth parsonage on the Yorkshire moors where six young children are brought up by a tyrannical father. Their lives inspire the fictional characters they create (Heathcliff and Cathy, Jane and Rochester), and their own story is far stranger than anything they would write. Told with humor, pathos and great theatricality, this show can either stand solidly alone or be a wonderful companion piece for Jane Eyre or Wuthering Heights.
