Information / Notes

It is 1845. Branwell Brontë returns home in disgrace. Plagued by alcohol and drug addiction, he has been dismissed from domestic service following an affair with the mistress of the house.

As their brother descends into alcoholism and insanity, bringing chaos to the household, the sisters write... Brontë beautifully evokes the real and imagined worlds of the Brontës, in a production in which their fictional characters come to haunt their creators.

Directed by Nancy Meckler and written by Polly Teale, whose previous plays for the company include the highly-acclaimed Speechless, Jane Eyre and After Mrs Rochester.
