We Are Brontë
We Are Brontë is a piece of comic visual theatre inspired by the real and imaginary worlds of Yorkshire's literary siblings. Physical theatre collides with stand-up, clowning and improvisation as two performers deconstruct not only gothic themes of love, madness, repression and revenge, but also themselves. Part play, part enquiry into the act of putting on a play, this promises to be no ordinary Brontë adaptation.
Devised and performed by Angus Barr and Sarah Corbett.
Directed by Ed Rapley.
Dramaturgy by Susie Donkin.
Additional performance and movement direction by Brenda Waite.
