The Duke on 42nd Street, 229 W 42nd Street, New York, NY 10036
Feb 27 - March 25, 2017

In the bleak and savage moors, there live two sisters. The eldest commands the house, leaving the youngest trapped in her shadow. But when a governess arrives, lies are revealed and loyalties shift...until someone reaches her breaking point. A riff on the lives and works of certain 19th century novel-writing sisters, this dark contemporary comedy examines love, power, and our longing to be seen.

"Literature cannot be the business of a woman's life." After receiving this crushing response from the poet laureate, Charlotte Brontë went on to write “Jane Eyre”, spearhead her sisters' writing careers, and break through a Victorian "glass ceiling." Literary history is forever grateful. So why did her family resent her and fall apart?

The Brontës is being developed by Theater in Asylum and is coming to Brooklyn in the Summer of 2017 with Piper Theatre Productions.
