Jane Eyre Summary

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

Almost 170 years on, Charlotte Bronte's story of the trailblazing Jane is as inspiring as ever. This bold and dynamic production uncovers one woman's fight for freedom and fulfilment on her own terms. From her beginnings as a destitute orphan, Jane Eyre's spirited heroine faces life's obstacles head-on, surviving poverty, injustice and the discovery of bitter betrayal before taking the ultimate decision to follow her heart. This inventive staging of Bronte's masterpiece was first staged by Bristol Old Vic in 2014, when the story was performed over two evenings. Director Sally Cookson now brings her celebrated production to the National Theatre, presented as a single, exhilarating performance.

Jane Eyre Reviews

'Even in what is fast becoming a very strong opening season from Rufus Norris at the National, Sally Cookson's staging of Jane Eyre still stands out.' * British Theatre Guide *
'The book has been filleted cleverly... Inventive, moving and at times unexpectedly funny, this is an admirable piece of devised theatre.' * The Express *
'clever, touching, minimalist yet expansive... makes you see entire new possibilities in theatre. I recommend it with a roar' * Daily Mail ????? *
'Cookson and her company stripped Charlotte Bronte's novel down to its bones; what was left was plot and emotion... the magic, the passion, the raw pain is allowed to remain intact.' * Culture Whisper *
'Newcomers and Bronte-holics alike will be gripped, amused and moved by a boldly theatrical show.' * The Times *
