Sisters of Tragedy: The Brontë Sisters and their Works
Date: Tuesday 8 May
Venue: Club Pavilion, City Club
Cost: $60 per person includes arrival drink and light lunch
Charlotte, Emily and Anne Brontë grew up in a bleak Yorkshire parsonage expecting to become governesses. Instead, they wrote seven extraordinary novels – passionate, violent, feminist and autobiographical. Only Charlotte enjoyed literary fame, as Emily and Anne died soon after publishing their works.
Susannah Fullerton presents the incredible story of these sisters of tragedy, performs dramatic excerpts from their books and poems, and explores the repressive attitudes to women against which they struggled all their lives.
