We Are Bronte
Morecambe and Wise meets David Lynch in this madcap reimagining of the Brontë myth, presented in Publick Transport’s irreverent and playful style. The real and imaginary worlds of Yorkshire’s literary siblings are the inspiration for an evening of physical theatre and eccentric comedy, as two performers deconstruct not only gothic themes of love, madness, repression and revenge, but also themselves.
A mini comedic masterpiece...constantly keeps the audience on its toes, giggling and guffawing throughout a highly entertaining hour... ambitious, risk-taking, edgy, just downright different – StageTalk Magazine
"masters of their art" ★★★★ The Scotsman
