Set against the bleak and windy Yorkshire moors  in the mid-1800s, Arlene Hutton’s Three Sisters Brontë follows the lives of the Brontë 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, Three Sisters Brontë  is a rich adaptation that deftly explores the parallels in the lives of the Brontë's and the Prozorovs.
