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.

Told through Jane’s eyes, one of literature’s most celebrated novels shocked the Victorians.

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.

Dyad Productions creates, produces and tours classic theatre with an innovative and contemporary emphasis.

This stage adaptation of Charlotte Bronte’s classic novel is Dyad’s eighth original production in as many years.

It premiered at Assembly Edinburgh in August 2016 to great critical acclaim and was number one in The List’s top-rated shows for theatre drama.

It can be seen at 7.30pm. All tickets cost £12.50, under 16s free. Call 01289 330999.
