Everyone’s favorite 19th Century literary family gets the rock treatment from Washington DC’s hippest theatrical troupe. Secrets, rivalries, drugs and drama abound as conflicted siblings Charlotte, Emily, Anne and Branwell trade Victorian repression for rock-and-roll expression in this raucous show The Washington Post called “Sublime.…Delightful musical satire.” The Brontës upends everything you thought you knew about the authors of Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights -- in the most entertaining way possible!
Running Time: 90 minutes without intermission.
A Valley GardenDesigned by Sophie Walker
Built by Mark Wallinger Landscapes Ltd
A Valley Garden is inspired by Jean Rhys’ Wide Sargasso Sea, in which a young girl is drawn into the world of the eternal summer garden “Our garden was large and beautiful as that garden in the bible – the tree of life grew there’. Through her engagement in the garden, the young girl gives voice to her inner world.
Within the garden, beyond a vertically planted ‘moongate’ lies a miniature valley. Lush and dense in green leafy shapes, two planted mounds frame a central pool. A lone weeping tree gazes downward at itself, reflected back in the waterpool below. A silver gravel path leads us into the garden. To the right and left, the path balloons into a viewing area that looks over two long side pools, into which leafy plants weep.
The design aims to bridge the gap between nature and the 21st Century world and the planting scheme focuses on a variety of leaf shapes, sizes and textures to create a vibrant green oasis, using ferns and broad leafed tropical plants.
