Jane Eyre

Brontë’s gothic tale of a spirited orphan in search of love, family and a sense of belonging, blazes the country in 2022.

Witness one of the most iconic pieces of English literature retold in a faithful yet fiercely original new stage adaptation from the nationally-renowned shake & stir theatre co (Animal Farm, Dracula).

Following a childhood spent suffering at the hands of her cruel Aunt, Jane finds employment at Thornfield Hall – the impressive yet mysterious home of Edward Rochester. As Jane and Rochester become inexplicably drawn to each other, the dark secrets locked within the walls of Thornfield start to unravel forcing Jane on a heart-wrenching journey toward truth and freedom.

This stunning new production, featuring original music, written and by multi ARIA Award winner Sarah McLeod, will set a fire blazing in your soul.
