Jane Eyre
Based on the novel by Charlotte Bronte
Directed by Katie Burlington
Produced by Julie Burlington

Performances September 5 - 22
At the Grand Tea Room in Escondido, CA.

Based on the world famous classic novel by Charlotte Bronte, orphaned Jane Eyre overcomes her early abusive and lonely experiences to become an accomplished governess at Thornfield, the mysterious home of Mr. Rochester. There she is drawn to the odd master of the house but their blooming future is destroyed by a looming secret from his past...a secret that forces Jane to flee Thornfield into poverty and illness. Eventually Jane overcomes all to find redemption to become an independent and wealthy woman with family and true love.

Adapted for the stage by Christina Calvit, this adaptation originally premiered off-broadway in Chicago to rave reviews: Lucia Mauro of the Chicago Tribune writes "Calvit has released Charlotte Bronte's famed Gothic novel, Jane Eyre, from its dusty melodramatic confines to show the title heroine's liberation from Victorian oppression. By judiciously trimming the tale of a plain governess loved by a noble man in a house full of deadly secrets, Calvit creates a focused, full-bodied work with a contemporary resonance."

413 Repertory Theater’s production of Jane Eyre will feature an immersive dinner theater experience complete with a full cast of professional San Diego actors, beautiful 1830’s reproduction costumes, and a full fall themed high tea provided by the Grand Tea Room! The 413 Project is an award winning Southern California Repertory theater founded in Escondido in 2013. Since that time they have expanded to produce 5-6 shows a year in the San Diego and Los Angeles areas including being named “Best Dinner Theater in LA” by LA Stage Scene for both 2017 and 2018. Jane Eyre will mark their eighth production at the Grand Tea Room after performing “The Games Afoot” earlier this year.
