After Mrs Rochester

Polly Teale
 
The hit show from Shared Experience Theatre Company based on the tortured and passionate life of Jean Rhys and her most famous book, Wide Sargasso Sea, the prequel to Jane Eyre.

In Wide Sargasso Sea – 'one of the works of genius of the 20th century', The Times – Jean Rhys first gave voice to Bertha Mason, Mr Rochester’s first wife in Jane Eyre. Placing Bertha on stage throughout as Jean’s alter ego, this dramatization of Rhys’ life gives full vent to her obsession with the “mad woman in the attic”.

Jane Eyre

Polly Teale
 

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...

Review

'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.

Speechless

Linda Brogan and Polly Teale
 
The true-life drama of two girls’ struggle to find a voice.

Winner of a Fringe First Award, Edinburgh 2010, the play is inspired by Marjorie Wallace’s bestselling book The Silent Twins.

Polly Teale and Linda Brogan’s powerful play is an astonishing and moving portrayal of the secret world of a very special but ultimately destructive alliance between two sisters.

Refusing to speak to adults, identical twins June and Jennifer Gibbons communicate in their own private language, their only relationship being their intense and turbulent bond with each other.
