From the creative team behind Tiny Dynamite's THE COMPLETE WORKS OF JANE AUSTEN  (ABRIDGED), This fresh, inventive adaptation will bring the beloved classic novel to new life onstage!

After a childhood of hardship but also hard-won lessons, Jane Eyre becomes the governess at a gloomy, isolated estate called Thornfield Hall. There she encounters peculiar servants, unsettling secrets, and the enigmatic master of the house, Mr. Rochester. Introverted but fiercely brave, Jane defies expectations of class and position by falling in love with Mr. Rochester. But the painful mysteries of Thornfield and its master may make happiness there impossible. Jane Eyre is a sweeping, heart-rending story of romance, independence, and the conquering spirit of a brave young woman. 

This one night reading event is the culmination of a workshop on this adaptation that will be produced as a co-production with Drexel University in the Spring of 2022.

The reading is free (donations welcome!)
