Morecambe and Wise meets David Lynch in this madcap reimagining of the Brontë myth, presented in Publick Transport’s irreverent and playful style. Taking the real and imaginary worlds of Yorkshire’s literary siblings as their inspiration, two performers combine rigorous physical theatre with anarchic comedy, deconstructing not only gothic themes of love, madness and revenge, but also themselves.
Expect wind, spooky houses and really bad coughs!
This is a fringe theatrical piece lasting one hour followed by a 30 minute questions and answers session post interval.
