We are Three Sisters

News release from Northern Broadsides:
We are Three Sisters: a new play by Blake Morrison
We are Three Sisters
Against the backdrop of a dark, remote northern town, three remarkable young women live their lives brightly.

Haworth1840’s;  in a gloomy parsonage where there are neither curtains nor comforts, Charlotte, Anne and Emily Brontë light up their world with outspoken wit, aspirations, dreams and ideas. And throughout their confined lives intensely lived…. they write.

Anyone who has read a Brontë novel cannot fail to be stirred by their overwhelming humanity, charged emotion and brooding, prescient unease with the status quo.

Now come to know the voices behind them.

With exquisitely drawn characterizations, a nod to Chekhov and a touch of poetic license, We Are Three Sisters is a pearl of a play which evokes with piercing clarity the life and distinct personalities of these three spirited individuals.
