“Do you think, because I am poor, obscure, plain, and little, I am soulless and heartless? You think wrong! — I have as much soul as you — and full as much heart!”
The young, orphaned Jane meets with cruelty at the hands of her aunt and then at the school to which she is banished. She eventually finds her freedom and becomes governess to the daughter of the enigmatic Mr Rochester at Thornfield Hall. As Jane and Rochester’s relationship grows, it is overshadowed by doubt, dark shadows and terrible secrets and she must choose between passion and reason.
Following the success of Wuthering Heights (“beautifully handled… this is the company’s best yet” BBC RADIO SHROPSHIRE) and Far From the Madding Crowd (“a magical production” THE STAGE), Hotbuckle bring their inventiveness, humour and unique magic to Brontë’s compelling tale.
