A vivid exploration of how three sheltered young women from a remote Yorkshire parsonage created some of the most raw, violent and passionate literary works of all time. Charlotte: the ambitious dreamer. Emily: the intense loner. Anne: the gentle, would-be social reformer. The Bronte sisters fought their geography, sex, and status to become published authors: only to be then consumed with cruel rapidity by the tuberculosis which haunted their family. From the team behind Close Up Theatre (sell-outs 2004-2018) and their 2018 five-star production of 1984: 'Chilling... brilliant... powerful' (

Loved it! Fascinating to understand more about the lives of the Bronte sisters and the circumstances surrounding the writing and publication of their now famous novels. I haven’t read a Bronte book since O Grades (showing my age here), and that was under duress! The play has made me want to go back and re-read them all!. Brilliant writing and well cast with strong performances from all.

A very well written and acted play. It compressed the lives of the Bronte siblings into a very powerful drama. The actors played their parts extremely well - within a few moments they had allowed the audience into the Bronte world. Such a world of imagination is difficult to imagine nowadays within one family. The actors very cleverly portrayed the differences between Charlotte, Emily and Anne and the actor who played Bramwell showed a very mature grasp of how that young man suffered.
The small stage actually helped make it seem so very personal. Congratulations to the cast and author. Very well done indeed.

This was nicely performed with a good, strong four-person cast. The sisters interacted well and were well delineated. The play itself however, was fairly standard theatre with nothing startlingly different from the many portrayals there have already been on both stage and screen.

The story of the Brontë sisters is a well-known one – the Yorkshire parsonage childhood, the male pseudonyms they had to adopt to court success, their tragic early deaths – but it’s one that bears retelling, especially when as succinctly and emotively done as it is here by the cast...
