Book by John Caird
Music and Lyrics by Paul Gordon
Additional Lyrics by John Caird
Based on the novel by Charlotte Bronte
Directed by Mark Wheeler


Charlotte Bronte's great love story comes to life with music to lift the heart and set the spirit soaring. This beloved tale of secrets and the lies that secrets create, of unimaginable hope and unspoken passion, reminds us what it is to fall deeply, truly and completely in love. The musical book is by John Caird, who wrote the musical book for Children of Eden.  Music and lyrics are written by Paul Gordon.
