Oh Heroine How I Love You! will be performing at Jefferson Market Library in NYC September 7 - 15th, as we read in Broadway World:
The Misfits Theatre Company has announced the presentation of the New York premiere of The Heroine Chronicles' (London, UK) site-specific production of Oh Heroine How I Love You!, written and directed by Callie Nestleroth, performed and composed by Sara Page.
Originally developed in partnership with Camden Libraries with the additional support of Unity Theatre Trust and the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, performances of Oh Heroine How I Love You! will begin on Saturday, September 7 at 8pm (for a limited engagement through September 15, 2019) in multiple locations at Jefferson Market Library (425 Avenue of the Americas, New York, NY, 10011 at W 10th Street).
Experience historic Jefferson Market Library transform with The Heroine Chronicles' production created specifically for library spaces, Oh Heroine How I Love You! Join the world of Cathy Earnshaw (Sara Page), the heroine from Emily Brontë's classic tale Wuthering Heights, and be taken by her on a journey that goes beyond the confines of her book. Whether from the many film adaptations, or Kate Bush's singular song, Cathy and Heathcliff are infamous characters. But do we ever consider the effect they have on their author, or those who learn their story?
A ghostly character, Cathy's grasp on reality is fraught. Be taken along for the ride as she wanders lost on the Yorkshire Moors, and catapults between her worlds created in adaptation. As you experience Wuthering Heights come to life around you, will assisting Cathy actually end up helping her author, Emily Brontë?
Deccan Chronicle talks about 'gifted' children:
[Sukhnidh] Kaur, who is an Economic-Psychology major from St. Xaviers’, Mumbai, says that she got the opportunity to research and study more on this topic due to her background in psychology. “I realised that I had actually read about people, whether it’s the Brontë sisters or Da Vinci, who are just not like other people. I studied more about it and understood that it is a real thing and not just an idea in the air. It has a strong neurobiological basis,” she adds. According to Kaur, research about giftedness has taken place in other countries and acceleration programmes for gifted kids are also in place but India does not have anything like that.

Beyond Chron explores the works of Jean-Pierre Léaud:
Yet “Weekend”’s drily absurd moments wind up having the tang of graveyard humor given more serious occurrences in the film. Dead people are treated as a survival resource, whether it takes the form of cannibalism or having the corpses from car crashes looted for necessities. The grim fate bestowed on philosopher Charlotte Brontë shows that the free play of the mind has no purchase in the mentality of the acquisition-minded. If anything, Godard’s fictional world mocks France’s egalitarian motto of “equality, liberty, fraternity” by showing it means in practice looking for ways to get even slightly ahead of one’s neighbors. (Peter Wong)
Pity, that the 'philosopher' Charlotte Brontë is not in Godard's movie, but the 'writer' Emily Brontë is.

The Daily Tar Heel tells about the work of the UNC student theatre organization Carter Plays for POTS:
The next performance of Carter Plays for POTS after "The Crucible" will be "Ollantay," a Spanish performance created to better represent Native American history. The final performance of the year will highlight 19th century feminism with "Jane Eyre."  (Ava Eucker)
The Los Angeles Review of Books posts about Ruth Ware's The Turn of the Key:
The secrets locked away behind an attic door calls to mind another Victorian Gothic nanny — Jane Eyre — and, like Jane, Rowan will discover that what she doesn’t know could hurt her. (Karen Brissette)
