A highly praised staging of Charlotte Bronte’s masterpiece Jane Eyre, originally produced at Bristol Old Vic, is broadcast live from the National Theatre at Trinty Arts Centre in Gainsborough next week as part of a nationwide event.
From her beginnings as a destitute orphan, Jane Eyre’s 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.
Almost 170 years on, Charlotte Bronte’s story of the trailblazing Jane is as inspiring as ever.
Director Sally Cookson’s bold and dynamic production uncovers one woman’s fight for freedom and fulfilment on her own terms.
The productions stars Madeleine Worrall as Jane.
Madeleine has worked extensively in London and across the country, most notably as Irina in Michael Blakemore’s Three Sisters with Kristin Scott Thomas and Kate Burton in the West End, as Sonya in John Byrne’s Uncle Vanya with Brian Cox for the Royal Lyceum, and as Cinderella in Stephen Fry’s original version for the Old Vic in London, for which she was listed as giving one of the five best stage performances of 2007.
She has also appeared in Peter Pan, The Lady from the Sea, Good, The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart, Gone With the Wind, Three Sisters, Twelfth Night and The Tempest.
The cast also features Benji Bower, Will Bower, Elly Condron, Craig Edwards, Laura Elphinstone, Felix Hayes, Richard Hurst, Phil King, Melanie Marshall, Simone Saunders, Jools Scott, Maggie Tagney, Stevie Thompson, Joannah Tincey and Ellena Vincent.
The screening is on Tuesday, December 8, at 7pm.
Tickets are £12 and £10 from the box office on 01427 676655 or online at www.trinityarts.co.uk
