Masquer Theatre, Missoula, MT

The Brontë sisters, Emily and Charlotte, having told their most well-known tales—Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre, respectively—now want to leave the past behind and explore a future time in order to see what will happen to their characters in a more contemporary setting. Brontë to the Future! is a mashup that places the Brontës’ beloved Jane and Rochester and Catherine and Heathcliff in the world of today—and possibly tomorrow—while retaining all the romance and Gothic splendor of the original stories.
