The play is described thus by London Theatre Direct, for those who are not familiar with the interpretation:
Jane Eyre is poor, plain and unloved. But locked up in the attic of her imagination lives a woman so passionate and so full of longing she must be guarded night and day for fear of the havoc she would wreck. Who is this woman who threatens to destroy Janes’s orderly world? A world where Jane has, for the first time, fallen in love. Last seen in the West End with its award winning play After Mrs Rochester, Shared Experience is one of the country’s most successful and inventive theatre companies, making a long awaited return to London with its heartbreaking, utterly compelling and unique interpretation of a great novel.
