Charlotte Brontë's hauntingly beautiful gothic masterpiece features one of literature's greatest feminist heroines in the character of Jane Eyre. Orphaned as a child, Jane takes a position working as governess at Thornfield Hall for the brooding Edward Rochester. The strong-willed Jane falls in love with her mysterious employer, but the discovery of a dark secret and its devastating aftermath forces the young governess to make a heart-wrenching decision that changes their lives forever.

Portraying the iconic roles of Jane and Mr. Rochester are Helen Sadler (Mysterious Circumstances, Geffen Playhouse; Blood Wedding, Lookingglass Theatre Company) and Chandler Williams (Jeeves & Wooster in "Perfect Nonsense," Hartford Stage; Mary Stuart, Broadway).
