First staged at Bristol Old Vic in 2014, Sally Cookson's acclaimed re-imagining of Brontë's masterpiece comes back to us in a single exhilarating performance following its transfer to the National Theatre's stage.
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.
Including all the original cast and creative team, this bold and dynamic production uncovers one woman's fight for freedom and fulfilment on her own terms.
