Young Jane Eyre

by Marisha Chamberlain

We are pleased to kick off 2018 with a favorite literary character of many - Jane Eyre.

An adaption by Marisha Chamberlain of the first nine chapters of Charlotte Bronte’s masterpiece; Young Jane Eyre follows the 15-year old Jane driven from Gateshead Manor, where she lived as a despised poor relation, to a harshly disciplined boarding school where she nevertheless makes true friends, faces her past, and prepares herself for an independent future as a governess.  

Krista Schwarting directs this coming of age drama of love, friendship and determination with heart and humor.

You’ll like Young Jane Eyre if you like: Jane Eyre, British history, coming of age stories.
