The Play

THE TENANT OF WILDFELL HALL

By Anne Brontë
An adaptation by Emme Hoy
Directed by Jessica Arthur

An epic of love and freedom

When Anne Brontë’s The Tenant of Wildfell Hall was published in 1848, it became an instant sensation. The witty, stirring, and groundbreaking story of Helen Graham and her mysterious arrival in the town of Lindenhope – a young son in tow but no husband in sight – so shocked and galvanised English society that Brontë’s equally famous sister (Jane Eyre’s Charlotte Brontë) sought to prevent its republication.

Playwright Emme Hoy last shared her spectacular gift for shining new light on classic texts with the original monologues she penned for STC’s 2018 production of Saint Joan. Now, almost two centuries after The Tenant of Wildfell Hall’s scandalous publication, Hoy mines this pioneering classic to produce a charming, ingenious, and passionate period drama for the twenty-first Century.

Taking inspiration from sources as diverse as Fleabag and Pride and Prejudice and starring the wonderful Tuuli Narkle (Black is the New White tour), The Tenant of Wildfell Hall will be directed by STC’s Resident Director Jessica Arthur (Grand HorizonsWonnangatta) in a whip-smart and contemporary production that will bring this lush, rallying, and beautifully-told story into the present to share with a brand new generation.

Approx. duration 2hrs 20mins (including interval). Subject to change. More info.
Content Themes of domestic violence and alcohol abuse. Subject to change. More info.

The Tenant of Wildfell Hall was co-commissioned and developed by the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) and Sydney Theatre Company.
