Charlotte Brontë's classic brought vividly to life by writer/director Elton Townend Jones and consummate actor Rebecca Vaughan. 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 Brontë's gothic subversion of fairy-tale romance is now distilled for the stage. Performer Rebecca Vaughan embodies everywoman Jane - and several other characters - in this intimate study of love's realities. Another unforgettable production from the creators of Austen's Women, Female Gothic and I, Elizabeth.
