Picture the Brontë sisters, but with American accents. Picture a large dog falling in obsessive love with a small bird. Picture a dark, satirical comedy that will haunt you like a strange dream. Come see one of the first productions in the country of a play The New York Times called "inspired . . . rolls out like the stuff of dreams . . . This is the reason we go to theater."

And at the Penzance Literary Festival:
In search of Anne Brontë, Cornwall’s daughter
Talk by Nick Holland
Date: 06 Jul 2017 - 1:00 to 2:30pm
Venue: St John’s Hall

Anne Brontë was the youngest and in many ways the most revolutionary Brontë sister, challenging the conventions of her time. She died aged 29, but left behind two brilliant novels and a moving collection of poetry. Anne lost her Cornish mother when she was just one, but her Penzance-born aunt changed Anne’s life (and thereby literary history) forever. Nick Holland, her most recent biographer, tells her story.
