Jane Eyre  

Jane Eyre $21.81 ex GST
$23.99 inc GST

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...


'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.


Cast : 3M, 5F (doubling reuired)
