Jane Eyre (stage version)

By Charlotte Brontë Adapted by Chris Bush

Paperback £10.99£8.79

Ebook £10.99£8.79

Jane Eyre may be poor, obscure, plain and little, but she has heart and soul – and plenty of it.

Chris Bush's witty and fleet-footed adaptation lays bare the beating heart of Charlotte Brontë's classic novel, whilst staying true to its revolutionary spirit.

With actor-musicians, playful doubling, and a plethora of nineteenth-century pop hits, it was first produced at the Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough, and the New Vic Theatre, Newcastle-under-Lyme, in 2022, directed by Zoë Waterman.

'One of the UK's most exciting young playwrights' The Stage

'A writer of great wit and empathy' The Times

'I must have action! And if I cannot find it, I will make it.'

Press Quotes

'An original approach to adapting the novel... deals wittily with the entire book, but concentrates on the most telling scenes, linking the whole thing up with song and dance... the final scene is as moving as you could wish for'

Reviews Hub

'Gripping and lucid... light on its feet... a brooding study of morality and desire'

Guardian

'Admirable and impressive'

The Stage

'Fluid, fast-paced and gripping... Does a fine job of preserving the key plot elements of Charlotte Brontë's original novel... Bush is particularly good at conveying the deep affection (and erotic charge) that exists between Jane and Rochester'
