Jane Eyre – An Autobiography by Rebecca Vaughan
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. Told through Jane’s eyes, English literature’s most celebrated autobiographical novel shocked the Victorians, and Charlotte Brontë’s gothic subversion of fairy-tale romance is now distilled for the stage – under its full title – by writer/director Elton Townend Jones. Performer Rebecca Vaughan embodies everywoman Jane – and several other characters – in this intimate study of love’s realities.
This stage adaptation premiered at Assembly at the 2016 Edinburgh Festival to great critical acclaim and was No 1 in The List’s top-rated shows for theatre drama.
