When their parents die of a mysterious illness in their small Welsh village, surviving siblings Thomas, Haydon, and Nettie are forced to fend for themselves. Unhappy with small town life, Haydon runs off to Liverpool where he meets a Romani woman, Mirela, who speaks to his wandering soul. This enchanting story, inspired by the author’s great-great-great grandfather’s journals, is magically recounted by a band of Romani musicians. Through a riveting indie-rock/folk score, For Tonight explores prejudices, family relationships and the indelible power of home.

For Tonight was featured in Goodspeed’s Festival of New Musicals, NYMF, MSU’s ĭmáGen program, and TheatreFest on the Isle of Man.

"Literature cannot be the business of a woman's life." After receiving this crushing response from the poet laureate, Charlotte Brontë went on to write “Jane Eyre”, spearhead her sisters' writing careers, and break through a Victorian "glass ceiling." Literary history is forever grateful. So why did her family resent her and fall apart?

The Brontës is being developed by Theater in Asylum and is coming to Brooklyn in the Summer of 2017 with Piper Theatre Productions.
