A classic comes to The Masque Theatre in Muizenberg when they host Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte.

Adapted for the stage by Alastair Duff it opens on Friday 30 June following the original story of the novel very closely.

The story follows experiences of its named heroine, including her growth to adulthood and her love for Mr Rochester, the master of fictitious Thornfield Hall.

The novel is well-known for revolutionising the art of fiction in the 19th century. It contains elements of social criticism, with a strong sense of Christian morality at its core. Nonetheless, it is a story which many consider ahead of its time given the individualistic character of Jane and the exploration of classicism, sexuality, religion and feminism.

The cast is led by Jamie Uranovsky as the titular Jane Eyre. There is a dual cast for the three children in the story, young Jane, Helen Burns and Adele Verans. Kiera-Lee Hayes and Ella Larkin share the responsibility of bringing Jane Eyre’s childhood years to life.

Playing the brooding and aloof Mr Rochester is Robert Shanton. The rest of the large cast is full of names both new and familiar to Masque audiences.

This production is presented by Constantiaberg Theatre Players, the same society that brought the hilarious Design for Living to the stage earlier this year.

The play will be at The Masque until Saturday 8 July, excluding Sunday to Tuesday.
