Charlotte Brontë’s powerful Gothic novel is brought to life on our stage. In her autobiography, Jane Eyre recalls the difficulties growing up as an orphan in the home of her cruel aunt and at Lowood, the charity school run by the rigid Mr. Brocklehurst. Throughout tragedy and hardship, Jane grows into an independent and spirited adult. She applies for and obtains a position as governess at Thornfield Hall, where she encounters its inscrutable master, Edward Rochester. There, she uncovers a dark and terrible secret, and Jane is forced to make a choice to follow her heart or her convictions. In the end, through great courage and sacrifice, Jane finds a place she can finally call home.
