‘I am not an angel, and I will not be one till I die: I will be myself.’ Charlotte Brontë
Through the lens of a rock documentary, Wasted gives an access-all-areas account of the struggles, heartbreaks and triumphs of the three Brontë sisters Charlotte, Emily, Anne, and their brother Branwell. Brought up in a remote, poverty-stricken town in Yorkshire, without money or opportunity, they fought ill-health, unrequited love and family feuds to write some of the most celebrated literature including Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights.
Coupled with a rock score from Christopher Ash (Showstoppers – Oliver Award winner for Best Entertainment), book and lyrics by Carl Miller (Emil and the Detectives, National Theatre), directed by Adam Lenson (Superhero – Off-West End Award for New Musical), the Brontës ask – was it all wasted?
Starring Natasha Barnes (Funny Girl) Siobhan Athwal (Romeo & Juliet, Shakespeare’s Globe), Molly Lynch (Sunset Boulevard) and Matthew Jacobs Morgan (Tommy), this is the Brontës as you have never seen them before.
