Strong passions and dark secrets at Thornfield Hall
Charlotte Bronte's classic gothic masterpiece is being given a brand new re-telling in the more than capable hands of Blackeyed Theatre. Jane Eyre, which has been freshly adapted for the stage by Nick Lane, tells the thrilling and timeless story of an orphan girl and her journey from a childhood of loneliness and cruelty to an unlikely relationship with the mysterious Mr Rochester. Jane Eyre, which has been produced by Blackeyed Theatre in association with South Hill Park Arts Centre, enjoyed its world premiere in the Autumn, and will now be continuing its UK tour in the New Year, including dates at the Lichfield Garrick theatre in Staffordshire in February 2020.

Jane Eyre
New stage adaptation of the classic gothic novel


Jane Eyre, first published in 1847 when Charlotte Bronte was aged 31, has been described as one of the greatest works of English fiction, filled with tempestuous passions and dark secrets. As Jane finds herself falling in love with Mr Rochester, she gradually uncovers a hidden past to the gloomy, forbidding Thornfield Hall, a terrible secret that forces her to make a heart-wrenching choice. Captivating, brooding and intensely powerful, Jane Eyre is a moving and unforgettable portrayal of one woman's quest for equality and freedom, and remains today as one of the great triumphs of storytelling. The current stage production is recommended for children from the age of 11 upwards. Jane Eyre can be seen at the Lichfield Garrick theatre from Thursday 13 to Saturday 15 February 2020. Tickets priced £15 for schools and £20.50 for adults can be obtained by visiting www.lichfieldgarrick.com or by calling the box office on 01543 412121.
