Wild Thyme
(and Heather)

she spins in the centre of the room. and it is electric

Grace is a control freak. Lily can’t stop watching porn. Clara is hiding. They’re all trying to work out where they fit. Things fall out of place when Heather has an accident on New Years Eve, changing their lives in a way they could never have imagined.

Inspired by the poetry of the Brontë sisters, this is Teastain Theatre’s response to contemporary feminism, guilt and grief.

Teastain take inspiration from the lyrical and empowering work of the Bronte sisters and transform it, sewing together threads of shame, obsession and heartbreak.
