A piece of comic visual theatre about Yorkshire’s famous literary siblings, the Brontë sisters, will be performed at Theatre Tropicana this month.

We Are Bronte is being put on by theatre company Publick Transport.

The play will deconstruct the gothic themes of love, madness and revenge which were much loved by sisters Anne, Emily and Charlotte Brontë.

All three sisters wrote poetry and novels at various times during their lives, with Charlotte’s Jane Eyre, Anne’s Agnes Grey and Emily’s Wuthering Heights all now considered classic novels which are loved by many.

This theatre production will be performed in a playful and irreverent style, as two performers re-imagine the tales of the Brontë sisters.

Publick Transport describes the show as ‘Morecambe and Wise meets David Lynch’, as the performance takes the real and fictitious worlds of the siblings as its inspiration.

We Are Bronte will be at Theatre Tropicana in Marine Parade, Weston, on April 27. The show will begin at 7.30pm.

Tickets, priced £10 per person, are available by calling 01179 020344 or online via
