An intriguing new stage adaptation of one of the all-time great gothic novels is coming soon to Buxton Opera House.

Hull Truck Theatre Company return to the Water Street venue with Jane Eyre, the classic story of love, loss and redemption.

From a harsh childhood controlled by unfeeling adults, Jane has to rely on her own courage and convictions to make her way in the world. She longs to learn. She dares to dream.

Employed as a governess, she travels across the bleak Yorkshire Moors to the mysterious Thornfield Hall - a house of locked doors with a dangerous secret. There she meets the strange, sardonic and intriguing Mr Rochester.

Can the constraints of society and the dark past be overcome? Should Jane trust her head or follow her heart?

Jane Eyre was written in 1847 by Charlotte Bronte. Since then there has been many television adaptations of the novel.

Most recently there was a 2011 film adaptation staring Mia Wasikowska and Judi Dench.

Directed by Nick Lane, Jane Eyre will be performed at the Opera House from Thursday April 11 to Saturday April 13 at 7.30pm, with a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm.

Tickets, priced at £13, £15 and £17, are available from the Buxton Opera House Box Office on 0845 127 2190 or online at www.buxtonoperahouse.org.uk.

A free after-show question and answer session will take place in the Stalls on Friday April 12.
