John Branwell / Jane Eyre


Wishing a fantastic opening night to JOHN BRANWELL who returns to Bolton Octagon in JANE EYRE, opening tonight and playing until 10 February.

A new adaptation by Janys Chambers and Lorna French, penniless and alone, Jane emerges from a bleak childhood to make her way in life as a governess. At Thornfield Hall she falls in love with her mysterious employer Mr Rochester, however he is hiding a terrible secret that could ruin everything.

Jane’s indomitable spirit, sharp wit and great courage drives her to fight for her independence and to follow her heart whatever the obstacles. This new stage adaption is a passionate and dramatic retelling of Charlotte Brontë’s masterpiece.

The Octagon’s artistic director Elizabeth Newman directs.
