Underdog: The Other Other Brontë (London, National Theatre (Dorfman), 2024) | Playbill

Underdog: The Other Other Brontë



Charlotte Brontë has a confession about how one sister became an idol, and the other became known as the third sister. You know the one. No, not that one. The other, other one… Anne.

This is not a story about well-behaved women.

This is a story about the power of words. It’s about sisters and sisterhood, love and jealousy, support and competition.
