The classic Gothic tale of Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre is deconstructed and transformed into a comedy in this hilarious and fast-paced one-act. Despite a gruesomely unhappy younger life, Jane ascends from lowly orphan to governess at the strange and mysterious Thornfield Hall, where she falls for the brooding master of the house. Narrated by Jane's sassy and spoiled cousins, Georgiana and Eliza, and complete with a talking dog, imaginary horses, and, of course, the agonizing pain of unspoken love, you've never seen plain Jane like this before.
