From the award-winning Shared Experience Theatre Company in the U.K. comes this engaging adaptation of Charlotte Brontë’s epic story of a spirited young woman in a man’s world searching for a sense of self. Orphaned Jane overcomes a rough start in life to become an accomplished governess at the mysterious home of Mr. Rochester. Passions grow between them when a secret is revealed, threatening Jane’s hopes for the future. Told by eight actors playing more than 20 roles, The New York Times raved that “this Jane Eyre provides a bite…think of it as Brontë unbuttoned.”

Meanwhile, she begins to work with the troupe’s puppeteer Paul, a former dancer who was injured in the war. Though Paul falls in love with Lili, his bitterness and anger keep him from expressing his true feelings, pushing her farther into the arms of Marco. This rarely seen production will be in collaboration with the Milwaukee Public Theatre.
