Blue Orange Theatre presents
Jane Eyre
Adapted by Eric Gracey
26th February -7th March

Charlotte Brontë’s tale of a young woman’s courageous fight through injustice and hardship was a revolution in literary fiction. It is a story that continues to inspire and enthrall over 150 years after its publication.
Jane’s life begins with physical and psychological abuse at the hands of her aunt. During her time at school, her spiritual and moral sensibilities flourish despite continued oppression.
Eventually, Jane is employed as a governess at Thornfield Hall where she falls in love with Edward Rochester, master of the house. Rochester eventually proposes to Jane but the complexities of his past ensure that Jane’s struggles are far from over.
