About Jane Eyre

As an orphaned child, Jane Eyre is taught by a succession of severe guardians to stifle her natural exuberance and as a result, she locks a part of herself away out of view from polite society. That is until she arrives at Thornfield Hall to begin work as a governess to the young child of Edward Rochester. Quickly, the wealthy man’s passionate nature reawakens Jane’s hidden self, but darker secrets are stirring in the attic above. Kathryn Walsh directs Polly Teale’s bold adaptation of the literary classic that uses theatrical movement to put the interior life of the novel on stage in a way you’ve never experienced before.

Please note: All productions at Northwestern University are performed entirely by students.
