Jane Eyre - An Autobiography
Jane Eyre – An Autobiography
Tuesday 7 November, 7.30pm
1 hour 30 minutes (no interval)
£15 (£13 concessions, £11 restricted view)
Suitable for ages 8+
Struggling to think, live and love beyond the stifling expectations of duty, class and convention, governess Jane Eyre and Master Edward Rochester take a dark journey towards sensual and intellectual liberation. Told through Jane’s eyes, English literature’s most celebrated autobiographical novel shocked the Victorians, and Charlotte Bronte’s gothic subversion of fairy-tale romance is now distilled for the stage – under its full title – by writer/director Elton Townend Jones. Performer Rebecca Vaughan embodies everywoman Jane – and several other
characters – in this intimate study of love’s realities.
