On a day like today (Branwell's 200th anniversary plus one day) it is good to remember that his memory is still a source of inspiration for new artists: Branwell (and the other Brontës) is a play by Stephen Kaplan which has not yet being premiered but has been read around in the New York circles:
Branwell (and the other Brontës)by Stephen Kaplan
Semi-Finalist: Eugene O'Neill National Playwrights Conference

(1M/5W) The Brontës had incredibly vivid imaginations that allowed them to create their famous works. However, it is in their own private fantasy worlds, first invented when they were children, that they find their most inspired outlets. With a clear set of rules, they escape to these worlds whenever fancy pleases them, but when brother Branwell lies on his deathbed, they find themselves escaping more often and with greater urgency. The siblings start changing the rules in order to avoid the inevitable and fight as they try to keep both Branwell and these cherished worlds alive.
