Sally Cookson's adaptation of Charlotte Brontë's masterpiece Jane Eyre returns to the NT's Lyttelton Theatre from 26 September - 21 October 2017 following a critically acclaimed season at the National Theatre and a major UK tour. Below, check out an interview with star Nadia Clifford, who plays the title character!

2017 marks the 170th anniversary of the first publication of Jane Eyre and Charlotte Brontë's story of the trailblazing Jane is as inspiring as ever. This bold and dynamic production tells the story of one woman's fight for freedom and fulfillment. From her beginnings as a destitute orphan, Jane Eyre's spirited heroine faces life's obstacles head-on, surviving poverty, injustice and the discovery of bitter betrayal before taking the ultimate decision to follow her heart.

Nadia Clifford plays Jane Eyre with Tim Delap as Rochester. They are joined by Hannah Bristow(Helen Burns/Adele/Diana/Grace Poole/Abbot), Matthew Churcher (Musician), Alex Heane (Musician), Melanie Marshall (Bertha Mason), Paul Mundell (Mr Brocklehurst/Pilot/Mason), David Ridley (Musician), Evelyn Miller (Bessie/Blanche Ingram/St John) and Lynda Rooke(Mrs Reed/Mrs Fairfax). The cast is completed by Ben Cutler, Jenny Johns, Dami Olukoya, Francesca Tomlinson and Phoebe Vigor.

The production was devised by the original company, with set design by Michael Vale, costumes by Katie Sykes, lighting by Aideen Malone, music by Benji Bower, sound by Dominic Bilkey, movement by Dan Canham and dramaturgy by Mike Akers. Jane Eyre is a co-production between the National Theatre and Bristol Old Vic.
