A bold and theatrically inventive adaptation of the literary classic that puts the interior life of the novel on stage.
As a child, the orphaned Jane Eyre is taught by a succession of severe guardians to stifle her natural exuberance. A part of herself is locked away, out of view of polite society... until she arrives at Rochester's house as a governess to his young child. Soon Rochester's passionate nature reawakens Jane's hidden self, but darker secrets are stirring in the attic...
'Polly Teale has liberated Jane Eyre in a way that Charlotte Bront? could not... Her most inspired idea is to fuse the mad woman in the attic with Jane's younger self' - Observer
'Puts the interior life of the book on stage as well as its narrative. Adaptations of this quality can't be dismissed as a poor second to reading the book' - Time Out
'one of the finest and most searching stage adaptations I have ever seen... this Jane Eyre succeeds as both a wise distillation of the novel and a thrilling piece of theatre in its own right' - Daily Telegraph
