“Tonight’s is the beautiful and dynamic theatre production of Jane Eyre, a collaboration with Bristol Old Vic, filmed by National Theatre Live at London’s National Theatre. The classic story of the trailblazing Jane is as inspiring as ever. It uncovers one woman’s fight for freedom and fulfilment on her own terms. Our spirited heroine faces life’s obstacles head-on, surviving poverty, injustice and the discovery of bitter betrayal before taking the ultimate decision to follow her heart. A National Theatre co-production with Bristol Old Vic, based on the classic novel by Charlotte Brontë, directed by Sally Cookson and devised by the original company.”
