Jane Eyre: An Autobiography is adapted and directed by Elton Townend Jones.

Struggling to think, live and love beyond the stifling expectations of duty, class and convention, governess Jane Eyre and master Edward Rochester take a dark journey towards sensual and intellectual liberation.

And Charlotte Bronte’s Gothic subversion of fairy-tale romance is now brought to the stage under its full title.

Performer Rebecca Vaughan embodies ‘everywoman’ Jane, as well as several other characters, in this intimate study of love’s realities.
