The Dissolution of PercyCobbles and Clay
Friday 26 June 6.00pm
This November, Dangerous To Know brings The Dissolution of Percy, the story of the final few years in the life of Branwell Brontë, to the stage in Greater Manchester and West Yorkshire. This summer, Caroline Lamb – Emily Brontë in the ambitious new work – will travel on foot across over 130 miles of Yorkshire moorland, Lakeland fells and Northern cityscapes to deliver performed readings of poetry and prose by the most famous family in the history of English Literature, along with new work inspired by their lives and pieces lovingly donated by kind friends, colleagues and members of the audience!
On the 198th anniversary of Branwell’s birth, Caroline will be at Cobbles and Clay in famous Haworth, the town that the Brontë family famously called home for their entire lives.
To follow her journey or donate a piece of work to be read, take a look at the company’s blog here: www.dangeroustoknow.org or follow us on Twitter: @DTKManc (#nocowardsoulismine)
