How did it happen? How was it possible? How could three Victorian spinsters have written some of the most powerful and romantic fiction of all time?

Destined to lonesome, isolated lives in the English countryside, three sisters (Emily, Charlotte and Anne) face their brothers decline into alcoholism and insanity. As chaos descends on the household the sisters begin to write, creating works of art that would reach the hearts of millions and span centuries.

Illustrated Productions is delighted to present the Irish premiere of Polly Teale’s evocative and imaginative play that brings to light the lives of the Brontë sisters’ unlike ever before.

On the play by Polly Teale:

★ ★ ★ ★ ‘Riveting… a tantalising glimpse through the window of a uniquely haunted family home‘ – The Times

★ ★ ★ ★ ‘Polly Teale’s densely satisfying play eschews traditional bio-drama in favour of something theatrically wilder and emotionally pressing: mixing fact and fiction.’ – The Guardian

Suitable for age 12+
