An energetic and imaginative new adaptation of Charlotte Brontë’s masterpiece, Jane Eyre, arrives at Milton Keynes Theatre on Monday (July 10).
2017 marks the 170th anniversary of the first publication of Jane Eyre – a significant time to be touring Charlotte Brontë’s classic and much loved story.
The highly acclaimed co-production between the National Theatre and Bristol Old Vic heads to Milton Keynes this summer with Nadia Clifford taking the central role of Jane Eyre and Tim Delap as Rochester.
Charlotte Brontë’s story of the trailblazing Jane is as inspiring as ever.
This bold and dynamic production tells the story of one woman’s fight for freedom and fulfilment.
From her beginnings as a destitute orphan, Jane Eyre’s spirited heroine faces life’s obstacles head-on, surviving poverty, injustice and the discovery of bitter betrayal before taking the ultimate decision to follow her heart.
Director Sally Cookson, said about her production of Jane Eyre: ‘Adapting a novel for the stage is a challenging prospect – especially when that novel is cited as many people’s favourite of all time.
"It is always daunting when you’re working on a story which everyone knows so well, because you want to surprise and maybe challenge people’s expectations, without losing any of the things which make them like the story in the first place.’
Jane Eyre shows until Saturday, July 15. To book tickets click here
