Directed by Davis McCullum

The Acting Company proudly presents Polly Teale’s groundbreaking adaptation of Jane Eyre directed by Davis McCallum, director of our critically-acclaimed 2005 production of The Turn of the ScrewJane Eyre is Charlotte Bronte’s timeless coming-of-age story of one of literature’s most independent and strong-willed women.  Recognized as a masterpiece when it was published in 1847, Jane Eyre remains a startlingly modern blend of passion, romance and suspense.

Jane Eyre is obscure and plain but locked up in the attic of her imagination lives a woman so passionate, so wild, so full of longing, she must be guarded night and day for fear of the havoc she would wreak.  Who is this terrifying woman who threatens to destroy Jane's orderly world: a world where Jane has for the first time fallen in love?  The Acting Company’s production transforms Bronte's great novel into deeply affecting drama.

Davis McCallum and a team of extremely talented actors and designers have created a mesmerizing theatrical tour de force that should be seen by young audiences and avid theater goers alike.
