Set against the bleak and windy Yorkshire moors in the mid-1800s, Arlene Hutton’s Three Sisters Brontë follows the lives of the sisters as they struggle to find creative prosperity, while navigating the harsh realities of male society. Faced with limited opportunities for educated women, Charlotte, Emily and Anne live in the rich worlds of their imaginations, until they are forced to face the truth that nothing is certain, and their destinies are best served when held firmly in their own hands.
Inspired by Three Sisters by Anton Chekhov, Parhelia is an adaptation that explores the parallels in the lives of the Brontë's and the Prozorovs resulting in a new theatre piece by the author of Letters to Sala and Last Train to Nibroc.
