Eyre ap­par­ent

Where London - - Entertainment -

JaneEyre, Char­lotte Brontë’s mas­ter­ful novel about a des­ti­tute or­phaned girl who makes her way in the world, has been a hit with the public since it was first pub­lished nearly 170 years ago. The com­pelling tale re­sounds with au­di­ences, who are taken by its uni­ver­sal themes of re­silience and in­de­pen­dence. This month, a new stage pro­duc­tion of Jane Eyre opens at the Na­tional Theatre (from 8 Sep; p. 44) fol­low­ing a hit run at the his­toric Bristol Old Vic Theatre. Di­rec­tor Sally Cook­son’s mod­ern telling of the tale fea­tures songs and imag­i­na­tive set pieces that will have you look­ing at this well­known Bri­tish literary hero­ine in a whole new light.
