We Are Brontë is a piece of comic visual theatre inspired by the real and imaginary worlds of Yorkshire's literary siblings and comes to Arts Centre Washington on Thursday 29 October at 7.30pm.

Physical theatre collides with stand-up, clowning and improvisation as two performers deconstruct not only gothic themes of love, madness, repression and revenge, but also themselves.

Part play, part enquiry into the act of putting on a play, this promises to be no ordinary Brontë adaptation!

The play is presented by Publick Transport theatre in their own irreverent style.  We Are Brontë premiered for three performances at the Bike Shed Theatre,
Exeter, in June 2015 before embarking on a nation tour which brings it to the North East this October. We Are Brontë is devised and performed by Angus Barr and Sarah Corbett, and directed by Ed Rapley.

This will be Publick Transport’s third visit to Arts Centre Washington, with  previously shows  ‘Very Hard Times’ and ‘Discombobulated’- being which were very well received by Arts Centre Audiences.
