JANE EYRE

18 Oct – 9 Nov 2019


By Charlotte Brontë
Adapted & created by shake & stir theatre co

Brontë’s gothic tale of a spirited orphan in search of love, family and a sense of belonging, blazes into QPAC this October.

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.

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 (A Christmas Carol, 1984, Dracula).

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