Jane Eyre

by Willis Hall

After a wretched childhood, Jane Eyre yearns for new experiences. Accepting a governess position at Thornfield Hall, she soon finds herself falling in love with the dark and impassioned Mr Rochester.

As Jane wins his heart, they seem set to become man and wife, only for a shocking secret to be revealed.

Retaining all the familiar passionate qualities of Charlotte Bronte's novel, Willis Hall has beautifully transposed the nineteenth century world of Jane Eyre to the stage.
