by Christine Davey, adapted from the novel by Charlotte Bronte.



Jane Eyre is the story of a young woman discovering the freedom of an independent life.

The narrative follows Jane through the orphanage at Lowood School to her work as governess for the enigmatic and mysterious Mr Rochester. On the verge of her marriage to Rochester, events conspire to make sure the wedding never takes place. Jane runs away, seeking refuge with the Rivers family until news comes of Rochester's accident causing his blindness. Jane runs to his side and declares her love and commitment to this man - marrying him on her own terms.

Jane Eyre is a story ahead of its time. Adapted from the rich and remarkable novel by Charlotte Bronte this theatrical re-imagining sparkles with life and love and energy.
