“Brontë: A wonderful, captivating solo portrait”
“Brontë” is a chance to have a front row view as history is brought to life. A great play for young and old alike to be not only entertained, but also to be educated.
 
For those studying Jane Eyre this is a great way to become acquainted with the author, who at the time she wrote it, had to remain anonymous.
 
For those who quite simply love the novel, please come and get to know a little of the lady who brought Jane to life. Be a part of history and let history be a part of you in this wonderful UK debut.
 
Synopsis
Brontë begins in 1849 with Charlotte, at thirty-three, returning from Scarborough, where she has buried Anne, her youngest sister.
 
Only Charlotte and her stern God-fearing father are left in this house of memories, and she has resigned herself to the notion that she will live and die a lonely maid. As the play unfolds, Charlotte comes to terms with her genius and her need for love.
 
Brontë is a play set across a short period of Charlotte Brontë’s life, beautifully written and giving an insight into the thoughts and feelings of the author of Jane Eyre, in her home at the parsonage.
