By Jennifer Dick
Adapted from the novel by Charlotte Brontë

No woman is satisfied with tranquillity.
We must have action, just as our brothers must.
It is narrow-minded to say women ought to confine ourselves to making puddings and knitting stockings, and it is thoughtless to condemn us if we seek to do more.

No net ensnares me. I am a free human being with an independent will

Jane Eyre, orphaned and unloved, takes charge of her life and finds her way to the position of governess at Achadh Droighinn - or Thornfield, in the lowland tongue. There she meets Edward Rochester, a strange but striking fellow, with whom she begins to forge a bond.
But he, and his house, hold many secrets. Whose is the peculiar laugh that sometimes echoes through the halls? What truth lies behind the unsettling series of events that disturb the peace of our heroine?
Set in Scotland, this dynamic new adaptation of Charlotte Brontë’s classic novel holds the same spellbinding magic that has captured the hearts of readers for generations, unravelling Jane’s story from her own uncompromising and passionate perspective, in the beautiful setting of Glasgow’s Botanic Gardens.
