Wokingham Theatre: 'Brontë'

Constrained by their background and their sex, three girls grow up in an isolated parsonage on the Yorkshire moors with an overbearing father and a brother unable to cope with the weight of his family’s expectations.

Against this backdrop, the Brontë sisters write novels and create powerful and passionate characters that have ensured their place in our literary history.

Heathcliffe, Cathy Earnshaw, Arthur Huntingdon and the first Mrs Rochester come to life as the sisters' story unfolds. Brontë is a fascinating glimpse into the life, mind and works of this extraordinary family.

Tickets: £12 can be booked online from the theatre.

Wokingham Theatre: 'Ladykillers'

The Ladykillers is a classic black comedy; a sweet little old lady, alone in her house, is pitted against a gang of criminal misfits who will stop at nothing.

Posing as amateur musicians, Professor Marcus and his gang rent rooms in the lopsided house of sweet but strict Mrs Wilberforce. The villains plot to involve her, unwittingly, in Marcus' brilliantly conceived heist job.

The police are left stumped but Mrs Wilberforce becomes wise to their ruse and Marcus concludes that there is only one way to keep the old lady quiet. With only her parrot, General Gordon, to help her, Mrs Wilberforce is alone with five desperate men. But who will be forced to face the music?

Tickets: £12 can be booked online from the theatre.
