Theatre, Performing Arts

Ties of Blood is a vivid dramatic work that re-interprets the lives and art of the Bronte siblings. Ambitious Charlotte (author of "Jane Eyre), passionate Emily (author of "Wuthering Heights"), benevolent Anne (author of "The Tenant of Wildfell Hall"), and their mysterious brother, Branwell, authors of beloved classics and iconic centerpieces in the world of literature.

Four artists, four geniuses, four siblings. Conflicting loyalties, forbidden love and competing affections intersect in this tale of a family torn apart by fame, alcoholism, and dark twists of fate. Through live music, movement, text from their diaries, letters, and novels, compiled and supplemented by playwright Caity Quinn, Ties of Blood represents a mesmerizing glimpse into the tortured world of the Brontes.

The show premiered in the Paprika festival in Toronto in 2013, and Theatre Hera West will be bringing it to Vancouver at the Havana Theatre, May 10th-13th 2017.
