Camilla Evans CDG: Jane Eyre Press Night

Date - 20 February, 2014, All News Press Nights Theatre

Camilla Evans CDG has cast Jane Eyre which opens to the press tonight at Bristol Old Vic.

A bold and dynamic re-imagining of Brontë’s timeless masterpiece presented in two parts with an ensemble cast of actors and musicians.

Almost 170 years on, there is still much in Brontë’s story of the trailblazing Jane and the charismatic yet vulnerable Mr Rochester to inspire today’s generation. This empowering and courageous production uncovers one woman’s fight for freedom and fulfilment on her own terms.

Jane Eyre is a strong and spirited heroine who, despite humble beginnings as a destitute orphan, faces life’s obstacles head on to follow her own path.

Part one of this vivid re-telling will take you from Jane’s childhood at Reed Manor, to Lowood School and on to Thornfield where Jane encounters the man who challenges her own passion and integrity.

Part two follows Jane’s rage against the injustice of society, the discovery of bitter betrayal and, in turn, the ultimate decision to follow her heart.

Directed by Sally Cookson (Peter Pan, The Boy Who Cried Wolf, Treasure Island), and with an original score and live music led by Benji Bower the two parts will draw on dark fairy tales and folk tradition to create a vivid and compelling journey.


Camilla is a member of the Casting Director's Guild.
