Last chance to see this amateur production of Jane Eyre:
Breffni Players presents
Jane Eyre
Directed by Angus Dunne
Adapted by Charles Vance
The Dock, Carrick-on-Shannon, Leitrim, Ireland.
Tue 6 March - Sat 10 March, 8:30pm

Breffni Players celebrate 75 years of producing top notch theatre with a staging of the classic Jane Eyre directed by Angus Dunne.
Jane Eyre  is one of the most loved novels in the English language and this version, adapted from Charlotte Brontë’s novel by Claude (?) Vance,  remains true to the essence of the novel while focussing on the love story of Jane and Rochester. The play begins in 1846 as Jane arrives at Thornfield Hall to take up the post of governess to Rochester’s ward Adèle. She and Rochester fall in love but is their happiness to be jeopardised by a terrible secret? The production by Breffni Players is by kind permission of Samuel French Ltd London and it will be an exciting night of theatre not to be missed.
The Leitrim Observer has further information:
Louise Maloney as Jane, the governess, beautifully captures the innocence and quiet strength inherent in that character. Jane is upright and moral and never wavers from the correct path, Laws and principles are not for times when there is no temptation, she cautions Rochester.
Rochester begins to admire her because she is outspoken and honest, unlike his posh suitor, Blanche Ingram, played by Edwina McNulty, who injects just the right amount of iciness into her performance.
Noel O’Callaghan is totally convincing as the troubled Rochester, a man with the weight of the world on his shoulders, a troubled soul battling between what he strongly desires and how he knows he should behave.
