An Evening with Charlotte Brontë

As you may know, my country seat is just a short hop from the Brontë parsonage in beautiful West Yorkshire. When I learned of a new theatre project, An Evening with Charlotte Brontë, that Prue Edwards is intending to stage in the village, I was so excited to learn more and I'm pleased to welcome Prue to share more details of her crowd funding campaign with you!


The parsonage
Little Red Hen Theatre is bringing one-woman show An Evening with Charlotte Bronte to Haworth on 15th &16th July at Howarth Baptist Church, 2016.  

Our theatre comapny is as yet unfunded and we have created a crowd-funding campaign to make our dream of bringing the show to Bronte Country true. So far we have received sponsorship from a Haworth based business, and we are continuing to promote our campaign through twitter. 

Here is a link to our campaign http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/an-evening-with-charlotte-bronte/

Here are more details about our production.

The Show

An Evening with Charlotte Bronte
This one-woman show brings to life extracts from the works of Charlotte Bronte; her poetry and fiction, including her masterpiece, Jane Eyre; and gives the audience a glimpse into the mind of a genius.

The History
First devised and performed in 2006, An Evening with Charlotte Bronte, has been performed many times over the years and received wonderful responses from audiences of all ages, in and around the north-west of England.
In 2013, we founded Little Red Hen Theatre, packed our suitcases and headed to The Buxton Festival Fringe in Derbyshire, bringing the show to a wider audience, again receiving touching and humbling responses to the piece.

The Dream
2016 mark 200 years since Chrlotte Bronte's birth, and it is a perfect opportunity to bring the show to Haworth, the home of the Bronte family.
