Jane Eyre, an orphaned, isolated child is rejected by a vicious foster mother and sent to a strict boarding school for poor and orphaned girls. Despite her challenging environment, Jane excels at school and is subsequently appointed as governess to Adele Varens, the ward of nobleman Edward Rochester, master of Thornfield Hall. Initially brusque and dismissive towards Jane, Edward is gradually impressed by her intelligence and integrity, and the two grow closer. Yet a significant love story the likes of “Jane Eyre” requires a good dose of trial and tribulation, and the road to Jane and Edward’s happy ending fittingly has many twists and turns.
 
Published in 1847, Brontë’s first-person narrative gradually unfolds Jane's moral and spiritual sensibility, her battle for independence and her struggles for emancipation within a male-dominated society. In an adaptation for just two characters – Jane and Edward – director and author Beka Savić brings the linguistic brilliance and sharp humour of this Victorian classic to the stage.
