Play Reading: The Underdog
The Round •
Looking behind the legend of the Brontë sisters
By Sarah Gordon
Charlotte Bronte - Houmi Miura
Anne Bronte - Anna Soden
Emily Bronte - Monica Sagar
Ensemble - Joe Feeney
Join us to for a glimpse into the potential future of new productions at the SJT.
A chance to experience these wonderful plays alongside their authors for the very first time, with opportunity for discussion at the end. Looking behind the legend of the Brontë sisters, The Underdog tells the story of the sibling power dynamics that shaped their uneven rise to fame. Where individual ambition and differing levels of success increasingly collide with the desire for group empowerment. Which, let’s face it, is awkward. Especially when you’re the underdog - AKA Anne Brontë. Written by Sarah Gordon, who brought her gripping debut The Edit to the SJT in May 2019.
