Charlotte Brontë Snares the Suitor
  • Brighton Fringe

A comedy that tells the story of Charlotte Bront's romance with Arthur Bell Nicholls. Charlotte has refused Arthur many times, as she thinks he looks like an ox and is only a curate. She is a well-known and brilliant author and Jane Eyre is the best book ever written. Her aim in life is to give a comfortable life to her beloved Dada. She is cruel and unkind to Arthur when he proposes and he decides he has had enough and is thinking of going to Australia. The family servant, Tabby, suggests to Anne that it would be a good thing to persuade Charlotte to marry Arthur. Beloved Dada is nearly blind and Arthur does all the work in the Parish. If beloved Dada is unable to carry on he will be replaced and they will lose the house. Charlotte agrees to marry Arthur and he refuses as she has been unkind to him. Tabby steps in and eventually Charlotte is able to say "Reader, I married him".

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.
