Jane Eyre
Adapted by Ali Morgan

An orphaned girl growing up amidst abuse and bullying, Jane Eyre is determined to stand up for herself and fight for her place in the world. Taking a job as a governess at Gothic mansion Thornfield Hall, she almost immediately falls for her employer, the enigmatic Mr. Rochester. But with the sneering eyes of society upon her, and Rochester’s dark secrets threatening to engulf the pair of them, it will take all of Jane’s wit and intelligence to survive and determine her own fate.

EDIT: The York Press gives details of the cast:
"Jane Eyre is a classic tale of defiance, determination, and the unbroken spirit of a young woman fighting for her place in the world," says company founder Daniel Wilmot, who will play Mr Rochester alongside well-known faces from York’s acting scene plus newcomer Moll Barton in the title role. (...)
Joining Wilmot and Barton in Morgan's cast will be Paul Toy as Brocklehurst, Mason and St John Rivers; Mandy Newby as Mrs Reed, Mrs Fairfax and Hannah; Raffy Parker as Adele, Blanche Ingram and Bertha, and Morgan herself as Bessie and Grace Poole. (Charles Hutchinson)
