Adapted by Nick Lane, this spectacular world premiere will shortly be calling in at Malvern’s Festival Theatre for a week long run from Tuesday, September 24 to Saturday, September 28.

Bronte’s Gothic masterpiece of tempestuous passions and dark secrets, tells the thrilling story of an orphan 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.

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