"★★★ Streamlines the complicated plot while providing compelling glimpses of the psychological demons and moral deformities haunting its lovers... stark but effective staging choices"  –Chicago Tribune
"All the complexities of Jane’s life and the atmosphere of the novel are translated into sights, sounds, and emotions in front of us."  –Time Out Chicago
"Dorothy Milne's expressionistic direction moves the story along... every actor here is in top form"  –Chicago Reader

After a troubled childhood, Jane Eyre searches for new purpose as a governess at Thornfield Hall. But a fragile peace gives way to turbulent passion when she meets Mr. Rochester, a man concealing a dark secret. Their unconventional relationship leads to a terrible revelation, and Jane must forge a new future from the ashes of her ravaged dreams. As she struggles to free herself from the ghosts of her past, Jane realizes that her only hope is to find love on her own terms. A highly theatrical exploration of one woman’s independent spirit in a beloved adaptation based on the classic 1847 novel by Charlotte Brontë.

Based on the classic romance by Charlotte Brontë
Adapted by Christina Calvit
Directed by Dorothy Milne
Produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc. (
