Jane Eyre is a vibrant and exciting modern musical, telling Charlotte Brontë’s tale of a young woman, alone in the world, from her childhood, to finding herself through love and loss and learning forgiveness of others along the way.
Set in the early 19th century, the sensational music and wonderful performances will take you on an emotional roller-coaster as you follow Jane’s life – living with Mrs. Reed and her children who treat her with open contempt. Jane rebelling against their ill treatment, and being sent away to Lowood, a nightmarish charity school run by the tyrannical Mr. Brocklehurst.
Jane escapes and finds work at Thornfield Hall the home of the dark, mysterious Mr Rochester. On his return, Jane grows to love Rochester but she begins to suspect that the house and its master harbour a dark secret.Will she fall for Mr. Rochester’s charms or for the sweet, kind love of St. John?
Written in the year 2000 with music and lyrics by Paul Gordon and book by John Caird this musical treat bears all the greatness of the biggest Broadways hits of this millennium.
