Overview

Brontë begins in 1849 with Charlotte, at thirty-three, returning from Scarborough, where she has buried Anne, her youngest sister. Only Charlotte and her stern God-fearing father are left in this house of memories and she has resigned herself to the notion that she will live and die a lonley old maid. As the play unfolds, Charlotte comes to terms with her genuis and her need for love. Julie Harris played Charlotte Brontë, author of Jane Eyre, in this captivating monodrama by the author of Barrymore, The Belle of Amherst, and The Last Flapper.
