The new Jane Eyre adaptation produced by Hull Truck Theatre begins an UK tour today, January 24 in Leeds:
Hull Truck Theatre presents
Jane Eyre
By Charlotte Brontë
Adapted by Laura Turner
Directed by Nick Lane
"I am no bird; and no net ensnares me; I am a free human being with an independent will.”

From a harsh childhood controlled by unfeeling adults, Jane Eyre has to rely on her own courage and convictions to make her way in the world. She longs to learn.  She dares to dream. Employed as a governess, she travels across the bleak Yorkshire moors to the mysterious Thornfield Hall – a house of locked doors with a dangerous secret.
There she meets the strange, sardonic and intriguing Mr Rochester.
Can the constraints of society and the dark past be overcome? Should Jane trust her head or follow her heart?

Hull Truck Theatre brings to life the classic story of love, loss and redemption in an intriguing new adaptation of one of the great gothic novels, directed by Nick Lane (Lady Chatterley’s Lover, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde)
