Publick Transport - We Are Brontë

Reviewed: We Are Brontë by Publick Transport

One of my highlights in 2015 was directing Publick Transport and now I get to watch them in Bristol. It’s always a pleasure to get a glowing review on your opening night. This one is positively radiant.

‘We Are Brontë provides a glorious mash-up of physical theatre, stand-up, clowning, improvisation – and a self-conscious exploration of both the Brontë sisters’ genre-defining work and the nature of theatre itself’

James Prescott, Bristol24/7

It is a delight to be able to spend the evenings this week in the Wardrobe Theatre running the warm up and take notes as Angus and Sarah play.

Watching the way the performers listen to each other and the audience. Getting to witness all those moment by moment decision. Still being made to laugh by material you have seen hundreds of times because each night it is approached anew. These are some of my joys and I’m incredibly happy with how the show works.
