Dunstable Rep presents
Jane EyreAdapted by Willis Hall
Directed by Christine Rayment
Performances: 19 — 27 January 2018
Little Theatre, Dunstable

After a wretched childhood, Jane Eyre yearns for new experiences. Accepting a governess position at Thornfield Hall, she soon finds herself falling in love with the dark and impassioned Mr Rochester.
As Jane wins his heart, they seem set to become man and wife, only for a shocking secret to be revealed.
Retaining all the familiar passionate qualities of Charlotte Brontë's novel, Willis Hall has beautifully transposed the nineteenth century world of Jane Eyre to the stage.
Dunstable Gazette quotes the director, Christine Rayment:
“This is a wonderful complete adaptation of the famous novel. I have had a longstanding love of Jane Eyre so I am very privileged to be directing this production.
“We are very lucky at The Rep to have such a high standard of technical and stage crew. Our team of set-build crew work tirelessly to bring our sets to life. This is a challenging production as it is a difficult construction.
“Our lighting designer and crew are designing some exceptional lighting for the production.”

This play is exactly what it sounds like; a closer look at the childhood of Charlotte Brontë’s most beloved heroine. In this family oriented and memorable re-telling, we see in fresh detail the relationships, homes, and horrors that made Jane Eyre who she is.
