★★★★ “One of the most compelling, intelligent adaptations of Jane Eyre I’ve ever seen … It’s a near perfect interpretation … another triumph for Blackeyed Theatre” Sardines Magazine

“One of the most innovative, audacious companies working in contemporary English theatre” The Stage

Blackeyed Theatre brings to the stage a brand new adaptation of one of the greatest works of English fiction, Charlotte Bronte’s JANE EYRE.

A gothic masterpiece of tempestuous passions and dark secrets, JANE EYRE tells the thrilling story of an orphan girl and her journey from a childhood of loneliness and cruelty to a life at Thornfield Hall and an unlikely relationship with the mysterious Mr Rochester. Falling in love, 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 lives as one of the great triumphs of storytelling.
