July, 14th – July, 17th 2022
The past is a ghost, the future a dream and all we ever have is now.
Orphaned at a young age, this play follows the story of Jane Eyre, who overcomes her abusive and lonely youth by finding accomplishment in her position as a governess at Thornfield Hall, the home of the charming and mysterious Edward Rochester. She is drawn to the Master of the house, but a secret of his past threatens to destroy their future. As Jane learns to leave the ghosts of her own past behind in pursuit of the happiness she seeks, new found family, an inheritance, two proposals and a devastating house fire turn her life upside down, shaping her into the independent, free spirited woman she always wanted to be.
Christina Calvit’s adaptation of Charlotte Brontë’s famous novel Jane Eyre follows the original story, but also focuses on Jane’s gradual ability to shed the ghosts of her past to become an icon of early feminism.
