This November, Dangerous To Know brings The Dissolution of Percy, the story of the final few years in the life of Branwell Brontë, to the stage in Greater Manchester and West Yorkshire. This summer, Caroline Lamb – Emily Brontë in the ambitious new work – will travel on foot across over 130 miles of Yorkshire moorland, Lakeland fells and Northern cityscapes to deliver performed readings of poetry and prose by the most famous family in the history of English Literature, along with new work inspired by their lives and pieces lovingly donated by kind friends, colleagues and members of the audience!

On 23rd June, Caroline will visit Halifax, once a favourite social haunt of Branwell's because of it's fascinating industry and thriving arts scene. To follow the journey or donate a piece of work to be read, take a look at the company’s blog or follow us on Twitter: @DTKManc (#nocowardsoulismine)
