Gothic romance on Rye Centre stage

Jane Eyre
Jane Eyre

MYRIAD Productions present the stage adaptation of Charlotte Bronte’s classic romance Jane Eyre at Rye Community Centre on Sunday October 27.

Orphaned whilst still a baby and adopted by a kindly Uncle who promptly died, Jane Eyre has never known a loving home.

Raised by her Aunt with cruel indifference at best and sent away to Lowood School where starvation, frostbite and typhus are part of the daily curriculum, Jane is ostensibly on course for a brief life of misery and depravation.

But Jane Eyre is special. Her nature strong, warm, unique: her sense of self unshakeable. She will not be defeated.

The production, adapted by Connie Stevens, is described as Classical theatre with a contemporary twist.

It contains deadly secrets and elements of Gothic horror.

The performance takes place at 6pm.
