A new student production of Christine Calvit's Jane Eyre adaptation is being performed at the University of Cedarville, Ohio:
Jane Eyre
By: Christina Colvit, adapted from the novel by Charlotte Brontë
Director: Dr. Diane Conrad Merchant
Performance Times: September 29 – October 9, 2016

This new adaptation of the beloved Gothic novel imaginatively incorporates haunting visual images, dreamlike memories and innovative staging. Orphaned Jane Eyre overcomes her lonely and abusive childhood to become an accomplished governess for Mr. Rochester’s ward at mysterious Thornfield, a place with dark and terrifying secrets. Her psychological journey allows her to triumph over the oppression of the Victorian era, in a script that Chicago Magazine called “a tide of loving and sure storytelling that treats its audience with reverence and respect.”
