In Haworth in the 1840s, in a gloomy parsonage where there are neither curtains nor comforts, Charlotte, Anne and Emily Brontë light up their world with outspoken wit, aspirations, dreams and ideas.

And throughout their confined lives intensely lived – they write. Against the backdrop of a dark, remote northern town, these three remarkable young women live their lives brightly.

Saddleworth Players’ production of ‘We are Three Sisters’ is directed by Carol Davies.

The cast includes Maye Battersby (Emily Brontë), Kate Davies (Charlotte Brontë), Esther Weetman (Anne Brontë), Samuel Reid (Branwell Brontë), Lisa Kay (Tabby), Verity Mann (Lydia Robinson), John Weetman (Patrick Brontë), Sam Rowlands (The Curate), James McKeane (The Doctor), and Martin Taylor (The Teacher).

They will perform at the Millgate Arts Centre, Delph, from June 2-9.
