Former CASUALTY actress Sophia Di Martino is due to tour the UK in a new play ‘We Are Three Sisters’ by Blake Morrison.
Sophia, whose character technician Polly was recently killed off in CASUALTY appears in the play alongside John Branwell, Duggie Brown, Gareth Cassidy, Catherine Kinsella, Becky Hindley, Rebecca Hutchinson, Eileen O’Brien, Marc Parry and Barrie Rutter.
Play details are as followed; ‘Against the backdrop of a dark, remote northern town, three remarkable young women live their lives brightly. Haworth 1840’s; in a gloomy parsonage where there are neither curtains nor comforts, Charlotte, Anne and Emily Bronte light up their world with outspoken wit, aspirations, dreams and ideas. And throughout their confined lives intensely lived.. they write.
Anyone who has read a Bronte novel cannot fail to be stirred by their overwhelming humanity, charged emotion and brooding, prescient unease with the status quo.
Now come to know the voices behind them.
With exquisitely drawn characterizations, a nod to Chekhov and a touch of poetic licence, We Are Three Sisters is a pearl of a play which evokes with piercing clarity the life and distinct personalities of these three spirited individuals.
