The Bronte Season – Touring

The Bronte Season

Three talented sisters
Three captivating heroines
Three new adaptations…

Whether you’re a hard-core Brontë fan or if you’ve never had the pleasure, these fresh new adaptations by West Country theatre companies Butterfly Psyche Theatre & Livewire Theatre will invigorate, inspire and melt hearts around the South West this autumn.

The Brontë Season is made up of the sisters’ classic novels: Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights, Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre & Anne Brontë’s The Tenant of Wildfell Hall.

Jane Eyre…theatre at its best. Wuthering Heights…brought to theatrical life with great skill.       The Tenant of Wildfell Hall…a must see show whether or not you have read the original.”
