Jane Eyre

Ariadna Gil and Abel Folk star in a new stage adaptation of ‘Jane Eyre’

The play is premiering with practically all of the performances sold out

A new version of Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre, adapted for the stage by Anna Maria Ricart and directed by Carme Portacelli, who is currently at the head of  Teatro Español in Madrid, is coming to Gràcia’s  Teatre Lliure from Thursday 23 February to 26 March. The cast includes Ariadna Gil and Abel Folk in the main roles, supported by Pepa López, Jordi Collet, Gabriela Flores, Joan Negrié and Magda Puig, with live music by cellist Alba Haro and pianists Clara Peya and Laia Vallès. But if you’re interested in seeing the play you’d better be quick since practically all of the tickets have now been sold.

This adaptation coincides with the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charlotte Brontë, a leading figure in Romantic literature who, together with her sisters, Emily and Anne, had to publish much of their work under a male pseudonym due to the sexism prevalent during their time. In fact, Charlotte’s 1847 novel is an indictment against the sexual and class prejudices of Victorian England and contains many elements that were inspired directly by the author’s own experiences – hence the title of the play: Jane Eyre: an Autobiography.

As complementary activities, on Tuesday 28 February, Teatre Lliure is staging the screening of one of the most recent film adaptations of the novel at Filmoteca de Catalunya and the 2011 film by Cary Fukunaga will be presented by Abel Folk. Meanwhile, on Sunday 5 March, there will be a discussion featuring the cast and the audience which will be broadcast live on the theatre’s website.

Additional information is available on the Teatre Lliure website.
