Anderson Theatre, Anderson High School, Cincinnati, OH

Join Anderson Theatre for a winter classic. As a child in 1800’s England, the orphaned Jane Eyre is forced by the era’s harsh rules concerning feminine freedom to lock away her natural high spirits and intelligence. She survives into womanhood, and is hired as a governess by the mysterious Mr. Rochester. There, her vitality reawakens at the same time as dark secrets in the attic challenge her search for happiness. With her play adaptation of this literary classic by Charlotte Bronte, Polly Teal strives “to make visible what is hidden, to give form to the world of imagination, emotion and memory, to go beyond the surface of everyday life.” The bold and theatrically inventive play premiered in 1997 and, and has been called “One of the finest and most searching stage adaptations of a great novel ever seen."
Behind the Curtain Cincinnati has further information:
“We always want our shows to be relevant to the students lives,” says Anderson Theatre Director Hannah Linser-Wilder, “and I chose ‘Jane Eyre’ because it speaks to issues of female empowerment that we are still dealing with today.” Anderson Theatre’s Winter Play, “Jane Eyre,” opens on February 23 and runs through the 25th. Incorporating dance and shadow-box lighting techniques, it ties the original story to the current day.

The Brontë Parsonage is home to the world's largest collection of Brontë artefacts, manuscripts and personal belongings. During 2017 we are offering a unique opportunity to go beyond the security cord into the Parsonage Library for a close-up viewing of some of the items not on display. During these special hour-long sessions, a member of our curatorial team will share facts and stories about a number of carefully-selected objects, offering a specialist insight into the lives and work of this inspirational family. Fascinating and moving in equal measures, Brontë Treasures is a not-to-be-missed experience.
