‘In a world where everything dies, only what we imagine, what we dream, will survive’
Brontë is a fresh treatment of a famous story with strong, tuneful music, set against the bleakly beautiful landscape of the Yorkshire moors. At the heart of the story is the Bronte family, whose driving force is Charlotte. Charlotte struggles against acute self-doubt, thwarted passion and the constraints of her time, to answer the calling of her life. Will she succeed, whatever the cost? By the end of the story, told in drole Yorkshire style by Tabby, the household servant, Charlotte at last emerges – not completely likeable, but absolutely herself.
Brontë is not a tale of grey hues. It is the story of a loving family who laugh as well as cry; a story of triumph and transcendence
