Blackeyed Theatre presents a gothic masterpiece of passion and dark secrets, Jane Eyre, at the Waterside arts centre in Sale February 24–26.

It’s a portrayal of one woman’s quest for equality and freedom and remains one of the great triumphs of storytelling.

Originally, Charlotte Brontë published Jane Eyre under the male pseudonym Currer Bell. A woman in a man’s world, Brontë wrote of a female character who, in spite of agonising hardships, manages to persevere and define her own happiness.

Blackeyed Theatre’s interpretation will feature an ensemble cast of actor-musicians. The performance includes live music for the production by composer George Jennings.
