Feminist masterpiece Jane Eyre is coming to the stage this autumn in Blackeyed Theatre’s thrilling new adaptation. Charlotte Brontë’s Gothic tale of tempestuous passions and dark secrets, adapted by Nick Lane, embarks on an epic tour of the UK and beyond. Jane Eyre will run at Malvern Theatres from 24–28 September.
Captivating, brooding and intensely powerful, Jane Eyre is a moving and unforgettable portrayal of one woman’s quest for equality and freedom. A woman in a man’s world, Charlotte Brontë wrote of a female character who defined her own path and happiness, rather than letting others design it for her. Brontë’s radically feminist novel has resounded with women since 1847, its passion and message still ringing true for women across the world today.
In its trademark style, Blackeyed Theatre’s interpretation of Jane Eyre will feature an ensemble cast of actor-musicians, with specially composed music by the award-winning George Jennings. This passionate and Gothic tale, directed by Adrian McDougall, will see Kelsey Short step into the role of heroine Jane Eyre, and the mysterious Mr Rochester will be played by Ben Warwick.
