Brontë

By Polly Teale


WEDNESDAY 13TH AND THURSDAY 14TH MAY, 2015 AT 8.30PM

Town Hall Studio

How is it possible that three Victorian spinsters, living in isolation on the Yorkshire moors, could have written some of the most powerful and passionate fiction of all time?
 

Galway Actors Workshop presents a studio production of Polly Teale’s Brontë, directed by Sarah O’Toole and featuring our Advanced Performance class. Brontë beautifully evokes the real and imagined worlds of this literary family, as the fictional characters come to haunt their creators.

It is 1845. Branwell returns home in disgrace. Plagued by alcohol and drug addiction, he has been dismissed from domestic service following an affair with the mistress of the house. As their brother descends into alcoholism and insanity, bringing chaos to the household, the sisters write.

Tickets are €10/€8 (concession) and are available from the Town Hall Box Office at www.tht.ie or call 091 569777.
