Following a critically acclaimed season at the National Theatre, Jane Eyre visits The REP in September 2017. This innovative re-imagining of Charlotte Brontë's masterpiece is a collaboration between the National Theatre and Bristol Old Vic, and is directed by Sally Cookson.
The classic story of the trailblazing Jane is as inspiring as ever. This bold and dynamic production uncovers one woman's fight for freedom and fulfilment on her own terms. 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.
