Drama fans will be swept away by the intensely powerful Jane Eyre at Theatre Royal Winchester from Thursday 19 – Saturday 21 March.
A gothic masterpiece of tempestuous passions and dark secrets by novelist and poet Charlotte Bronte, 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. But her new found happiness is threatened by hidden pasts in the gloomy, forbidding Thornfield Hall and a terrible secret forces her to make a heart-wrenching choice.
Brought to the stage by one of the UK’s leading touring theatre companies, Blackeyed Theatre continues its international tour of its captivating adaptation of Jane Eyre – featuring an ensemble cast of actor-musicians who take on all characters between them; and design and live music (composed specially for the production and performed live by the cast) from award-winning creatives.
Jane Eyre – one of the greatest triumphs of storytelling – is a moving and unforgettable portrayal of one woman’s quest for equality in a patriarchal society, and freedom.
A post show chat follows the Thursday evening performance.
