This dramatic reconstruction of the turbulent inner and outer lives of the Brontë sisters has been staged in London and Dublin and all over the UK.  The short troubled lives of the Brontë sisters have become one of the great literary myths of all time.
How was it possible that three women who had never had sex, had probably never even been kissed, could write some of the most erotic literature of all time?
Why should these plain, reclusive women, who lived in rural isolation, have invented such stories? What was it in their lives that compelled them to write such passion and power? A Pacific Northwest premiere of the UK’s Shared Experience Theatre’s acclaimed work, including adapted text from the Brontë sister’s most famous and popular works.
