Daniel Elihu Kramer, well-known for our popular production of Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice, returns to Columbus and Available Light for a romantic deconstruction of another beloved Jane.
Why is Jane Eyre so beloved? What has the novel meant to readers in the past? What does it mean now? How is Jane's story universal and how is it deeply personal?
Jane Eyre: A Memory, A Fever, A Dream faithfully enhances Charlotte Brontë's classic story.
