Programme Note #1: Jane Eyre

MO wrote: “The story of Jane Eyre is widely known and we all have personal pictures of Jane and Rochester; however, I am sure the sincerity of the performances of ‘our’ Jane and Rochester will move you. Perhaps the appeal of the story lies in its statement about the power of love – a statement just as important in 1990 as in 1847.

It has been a great pleasure directing this play and working with such a supportive and enthusiastic team. May I wish you all an enjoyable evening.”
