A new production of Polly Teale's Jane Eyre opens in Cambridge:

Brickhouse Theatre Company presents
Jane Eyre
Adapted by Polly Teale
Directed by Georgina Deri
The Brickhouse Auditoriu
Robinson College
November 6-9, 7.30pm

"It is madness in all women to let a secret love kindle within them, which, if unreturned and unknown, must devour the life that feeds it."
A bold and theatrically inventive adaptation of the literary classic that succeeds as both a wise distillation of the novel and a thrilling piece of theatre in its own right.
As a child, the orphaned Jane Eyre is taught by a succession of severe guardians to stifle her natural exuberance. A part of herself is locked away, out of view of polite society... Until she arrives at Mr Rochester's house as a governess to his young ward. Soon, Rochester's passionate nature reawakens Jane's hidden self, but darker secrets are lurking in the attic...
