Jane Eyre

The World Premiere of a brand new adaptation of one of the greatest works of English fiction, Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre.

“I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will”

A gothic masterpiece of tempestuous passions and dark secrets, Jane Eyre tells the thrilling story of an orphan girl and her journey from a childhood of loneliness and cruelty to a life at Thornfield Hall and an unlikely relationship with the mysterious Mr Rochester. Falling in love, she gradually uncovers a hidden past to the gloomy, forbidding Thornfield Hall, a terrible secret that forces her to make a heart-wrenching choice.

Captivating, brooding and intensely powerful, Jane Eyre is a moving and unforgettable portrayal of one woman’s quest for equality and freedom, and lives as one of the great triumphs of storytelling. Performed by a cast of five in an exciting ensemble performance style, using original live music, stylish theatricality and engaging story-telling Nick Lane has created a fresh, accessible theatrical experience of a timeless classic.

Written by Charlotte Brontë, adapted and directed for the Stage by Nick Lane. Performed by Blackeyed Theatre.

Running time: Approx 150 minutes (including interval)
