Jane Eyre – May 2018

Jane Eyre, adapted by Polly Teale. Directed by Tamsin Jacson. Original music composed by Rupert Egerton-Smith

Performance dates 21st -26th May

Polly Teale’s adaptation of the classic tale of a beleaguered governess is anything but staid and boring. Created in 1997 for Shared Experience Theatre, the show uses rich text and language combined with movement and music to convey the passionate inner selves that are concealed behind the public personas of the roles. The principle premise of this text is that inside sensible, moral Jane exists a passionate, sensual and rebellious woman, fighting to be free of the constraints of Victorian society. The ‘madwoman in the attic’ Bertha, represents this side of Jane’s character. Just as when you read a novel you can get inside the skin and thoughts of the characters, so in this adaptation, the audience can see the invisible world of emotion and imagination which results in a very visual and engaging performance (or so we hope!……)
