Morecambe and Wise meets David Lynch in this madcap reimagining of the Brontë myth, presented in Publick Transport’s playful and irreverent style.

Bristol-based Publick Transport’s fifth show, We Are Brontë, is a hilarious piece of Gothic visual theatre inspired by the real and imaginary worlds of the Brontës, presented in the company’s playful and irreverent style. Drawing on biographies and key novels such as Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre, the performers attempt to distill the essence of the Brontës through minimal dialogue, sparse physical theatre, recurring visual metaphors, and haunting music, while exploring themes of repression, love, madness and death. The material is very serious; the result is anything but.

“a mini comedic masterpiece… ambitious, risk-taking, edgy, just downright different.” ★★★★★ StageTalk Magazine

“excruciatingly funny…engagingly absurd and imaginative; a visual feast…I didn’t want to miss so much as a wink…the performances of Barr and Corbett are detailed, precise and beautifully comic.’ British Theatre Guide

Running time: 60 minutes

Suitable for ages 12 years+
