• England

Struggling to think, live and love beyond the stifling expectations of duty, class and convention, governess Jane Eyre and Master Edward Rochester take a dark journey towards sensual and intellectual liberation in Charlotte Bronte’s gothic subversion of fairy-tale romance.

Told through Jane’s eyes, English literature’s most celebrated autobiographical novel shocked the Victorians. Performer Rebecca Vaughan embodies everywoman Jane – and several other characters – in this intimate study of love’s realities. 

Extra: Rebecca Vaughan joins a panel to discuss the enduring appeal of gothic women in literature in Shifting Points of View: Madwomen in the Attic on Wed 6 Sept.

Adapted by writer/director Elton Townend Jones and performer Rebecca Vaughan
