“I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will”
Following its premature closure as a result of COVID-19, Jane Eyre is available to watch free online in May.
Seen by over 19,000 people in 40 towns and cities across the UK, Jane Eyre had been due to continue its UK tour until 23 May before spending a month in China, and with the cancellation of all remaining performances, we’re delighted to share our archive recording of the show, filmed at the Wilde Theatre in Bracknell in September 2019.

A gothic masterpiece of tempestuous passions and dark secrets, Jane Eyre tells the thrilling story of an orphan girl and her journey from a childhood of loneliness and cruelty to a life at Thornfield Hall and an unlikely relationship with the mysterious Mr Rochester. Falling in love, she gradually uncovers a hidden past to the gloomy, forbidding Thornfield Hall, a terrible secret that forces her to make a heart-wrenching choice.

Captivating, brooding and intensely powerful, Jane Eyre is a moving and unforgettable portrayal of one woman’s quest for equality and freedom, and lives as one of the great triumphs of storytelling.

Recommended for age 11+

Running time: 130 minutes
