  • 18 - 23 May

Event Information

Evenings: 7pm (excluding Sunday)

Matinee: Saturday 2pm

Tickets: £12 (Students £10)

Written by: Tom Wentworth, Steph Kempson, Alice Lamb and Bath Theatre Academy Second Year Students

Before Jane, Rochester, Heathcliff and Cathy, there was Glasstown, Angria and Gondal.

Meet the magnificent (and precocious) Bronte siblings and their wuthering flights of fantasy, in their magical lands where bloody duels are fought and love affairs last a lifetime. But what happens when fantasy and reality blur?

Trying to escape the real world, Charlotte, Emily, Anne and Branwell battle for ultimate control of their fictional universe. What if there is no escape?

Inspired by the Brontes’ earliest writings, BTA second year students go full Bronte in collaboration with director Stephanie Kempson (Fringe First award winner for Breathless) and writer Tom Wentworth (BBC's Ralph and Katie; Pentabus' Little Bits of Ruined Beauty). This bold and boisterous Bronte-fest celebrates the power of imagination to transport us to other worlds – and back again.
