ON TOUR: Jane Eyre
A Bristol Old Vic and National Theatre co-production
"I am no bird; and no net ensnares me..."
Almost 170 years on, Charlotte Brontë's 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.
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.
Sallly Cookson's acclaimed re-imagining of Brontë's masterpiece was first staged by Bristol Old Vic in 2014, before transferring to the National Theatre in 2015. This celebrated production returns in 2017, setting off on a national tour (see dates below).
