25 Jun 2021 to 26 Jun 2021 Once Only Event
Acclaimed playwright, Cate Whittaker, returns to the stage in 2021 with her gothic, inspiring work: The Lost Voice of Anne Brontë.
An inspiring drama of a delicate, dutiful, and devout girl. Anne is repressed by waring sisters, a dissolute brother and zealot of a father, yet finds courage to risk financial ruin and reputation to write on the misery of girls pressed into loveless marriages, and wives devoid of legal rights powerless against abusive husbands. Vilified and brutalised to silence her for her heinous The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (which sold out faster than sister Charlotte’s Jane Eyre) Anne plans a second edition and hits back at her critics in its preface. But exhausted and ill in her work, Anne dies and is marred from her rightful place in History. Based on a true story and historical accounts.
After celebrated Sydney performances in 2020, the Whittaker Players will be returning the stage in 2021 in Canberra, Brisbane, and Melbourne before heading off to the UK for Anne Brontë’s Bicentenary.
Book tickets for performances at the Canberra Theatre Centre (June 25-26) now!
