Richmond Shakespeare Society presents
We Are Three Sisters
by Blake Morrison
Directed by Polly Beauwin
Two hundred years ago, a writer was born. Her family would grow to give us three of the greatest writers this country has known: Charlotte, Emily and Anne Brontë. Their lives unfolded, for the most part, in the village of Haworth, in obscurity, but when their novels and poetry were published, they caused a sensation in London. Charlotte longed for London. Anne longed for romantic love. And Emily remained deeply attached to the Yorkshire countryside. Blake Morrison presents a view of life in the provinces full of humour and drama, family life with its affections and irritations, and the earthy, everyday life of a very remarkable family.
