Early Close for Polly Teale’s Jane Eyre

After being extended for a few weeks, the London run of Polly Teale’s Jane Eyre is closing early.

Shared Experience’s Jane Eyre will close one week earlier than previously planned (See News, 4 Jul 2006). Polly Teale’s acclaimed production, which transferred to the West End’s Trafalgar Studio 1 on 12 May 2006 (previews from 9 May) following a UK tour (See News, 25 Jan 2006), extended its original six-week run by a further four weeks to 26 August 2006. It is now scheduled to finish on 19 August 2006.
Adapted from Charlotte Bronte’s novel, the play focuses on the stark contrast between Jane’s strict Victorian upbringing and her passionate, imaginative nature.
Jane Eyre previously had a successful London run at the Young Vic in 1997. The cast includes Monica Dolan, James Clyde and Miriam Acharki.

Meanwhile, the play is set to premiere soon in America.
