Octagon Theatre Bolton
Based on the novel by Charlotte Brontë
A new adaptation by Janys Chambers and Lorna French
Directed by Elizabeth Newman

“I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.”

Penniless and alone, Jane emerges from a bleak childhood to make her way in life as a governess. At Thornfield Hall she falls in love with her mysterious employer Mr Rochester, however he is hiding a terrible secret that could ruin everything.

Jane’s indomitable spirit, sharp wit and great courage drives her to fight for her independence and to follow her heart whatever the obstacles. This new stage adaption is a passionate and dramatic retelling of Charlotte Brontë's masterpiece.
