Jane Eyre Broadway

Based on the novel by Charlotte Brontë

Jane Eyre is a haunting retelling of the Charlotte Bronte classic about an orphan girl who grows up to become the governess of Thornfield Hall. There she meets and falls in love with the enigmatic Edward Rochester, an Earl with a dark secret. Having overcome the obstacles brought on by an abusive childhood, the death of a childhood friend and the prejudice inherent in a relationship between two people socially worlds apart, Jane marries Rochester. Her wedding day is marred when she discovers his secret: he already has a wife, a half-crazed lunatic hidden in the attic.

For me, it's always the same: I'm asked to adapt a novel, I get all excited, have all these ideas… Then I read the source material and think, "Wow. Follow that." So it was here. Jane Eyre was the first time I'd been asked to adapt a novel by a female writer. I was honoured… and nervous. I knew the book; I'd read it when I was younger, purely for pleasure. Coming to it as a playwright was entirely different, I'd say - you're looking for ways to weave a satisfying theatrical structure as seamlessly as possible into a beautiful, revered text without losing the quality of the character work or the richness of the world created within its pages.
