Jane Eyre audition dates

The story: The play is set somewhere in the north of England, in the early nineteenth century. It tells of Jane’s childhood at Gateshead Hall, where she is abused by her aunt and cousins then banished to Lowood School, where she finds friends and role models. As an adult she finds employment as governess at Thornfield Hall, where she falls in love with her mysterious employer, Rochester, a man haunted by his difficult past. She has to escape and finds her way to Moor House, where she runs the village school and is proposed to by her clergyman cousin, St. John Rivers. But finally she is reunited with, and gets married to, her beloved Rochester.
