Jane Eyre, the classic novel from Charlotte Bronte, heads to the stage of the Lyttelton National Theatre on South Bank, giving audiences the latest opportunity to witness a true classic from English literature. Sally Cookson takes on directing duties, whilst the cast includes the likes of Benji Bower, Will Bower, Craig Edwards, Felix Hayes, Phil King, Melanie Marshall, Simone Saunders, Maggie Tagney and Madeleine Worrall.
Ever since it was first published in 1847, the novel has been a favourite of fans around the world and has been adapted on numerous occasions. But this production, co-produced with the Bristol Old Vic Theatre, will be a stand-out at one of the prestigious homes of British theatre.
The story focuses on the title character, following her from childhood to adulthood beginning with her time with her family and progressing to an orphan before eventually growing up into a confident woman and falling in love with Mr Rochester.
Over the years many well known names have taken on the role of the title character, with Mia Wasikowska doing so in the latest big screen adaptation that emerged in 2011 and also starred Michael Fassbender. On this occasion another talented performer steps into the part.
And directing her is Sally Cookson. The practitioner has been behind various productions over the years, including numerous productions for the Bristol Old Vic, from Treasure Island to The Visit. She has also worked as an actor and has been seen on the stages of the West End and beyond.
This year the National Theatre welcomes the likes of Our Country’s Good to the Olivier Stage and continues to put on a wealth of popular shows. Amongst them, Jane Eyre appears on the Lyttelton stage from Thursday 17th September 2015 (previews from Tuesday 8th September 2015).
