BLAKE Morrison's 'We Are Three Sisters' is to be performed at Skipton Little Theatre this month.

In the play, the Craven born poet, playwright and novelist, writer of 'And When Did Your Last See Your Father' tells the story of the Bronte sisters, with a nod to Chekhov's Three Sisters.

In Haworth in the 1840s, in a gloomy parsonage, where there are neither curtains nor comforts, Charlotte, Anne and Emily Bronte light up their world with outspoken wit, aspirations, dreams and ideas. And throughout their confined lives, they write.

With a touch of poetic licence, Morrison shows the overwhelming humanity, charged emotions and brooding unease which characterise the Bronte household – and that of Chekhov’s Three Sisters.

Blake Morrison was born in Thornton-in-Craven in 1950 and attended Ermysted's Grammar School before going on to study English Literature at the University of Nottingham and UCL.

He was literary editor of both The Observer and the Independent on Sunday, and became a full time writer in 1995.

We Are Three Sisters will be performed at Skipton Little Theatre from Tuesday, February 19 to Saturday, February 23. Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start. Seats £10 and £5 for under 16s and students. Visit:
