Yorkshire, 1845. Branwell Brontë returns home in disgrace, dismissed from his job and plagued by alcohol and drug addiction. Meanwhile his sisters counter their rural isolation and the rigid trappings of the age, by channeling their intellect, frustrations and buried desires into the creative furnace of their writing.

In this ingenious and gripping interpretation of the Brontë legend, Polly Teale (Artistic Director of Shared Experience) brilliantly evokes the real and imagined worlds of the three sisters by weaving their fictional characters into the action, powerfully revealing all that is thwarted, suppressed and unconscious.
