Jane Eyre Online
Jane Eyre Online: Sunday 10 – Sunday 17 May
by Charlotte Brontë
Adapted for the Stage by Nick Lane
Produced in association with South Hill Park Arts Centre
Seen by over 19,000 people in 40 towns and cities across the UK, Jane Eyre had been due to continue its UK tour until 23 May before spending a month in China, and with the cancellation of all remaining performances, we were delighted to share our archive recording of the show, filmed at the Wilde Theatre in Bracknell in September 2019.
The performance premiered on YouTube on Sunday 10 May at 19:30 and it was available to watch free of charge until Sunday 17 May at 23:30.
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.
