JANE EYRE adapted by Polly Teale

A theatrically innovative adaptation of the beloved gothic romance by Charlotte Brontë.
Jane Eyre is orphaned, plain and poor, restricted to working as a governess in Thornfield Hall. But living in the attic of her imagination is a woman so passionate and fiery Jane must keep her locked away. Polly Teale’s adaptation beautifully captures the stormy relationships between Jane, the master of Thornfield, Mr. Rochester, and Jane’s passionate inner self. Compelling, sensual and stark, it is a treat for Brontë fans and neophytes alike.

“One of the finest and most searching stage adaptations of a great novel I have ever seen.” – The London Telegraph
“Brilliant. A big stormy play.” – Sunday Times
