‘I can see in you the glance of a curious sort of bird through the close-set bars of a cage. Were it put free, it would soar, cloud-high…’
After enduring a childhood of cruelty and loneliness, orphan Jane Eyre takes a position as the governess at Thornfield Hall. But when love blossoms between Jane and her enigmatic employer Mr Rochester, a secret is discovered that forces her to choose between happiness and integrity, desire and conviction.
Dark, passionate and political, Jane Eyre is a searing portrayal of a woman’s search for equality and freedom. Brontë’s classic novel is brought to life by three actors in a fast-paced, stripped back new adaptation.
There will be a free post-show Q&A following performances on Tuesday to Friday.
Jane Eyre will be touring to schools from 5 to 23 November. For more information about booking the tour call 01635 570927.
