Synopsis

Written by: Daniel Elihu Kramer
Directed by: Knud Adams

WORLD PREMIERE

A struggle to survive. A romance with dark secrets. Two love affairs—Jane and Rochester, and Jane and her readers. The sweeping drama of Charlotte Brontë’s beloved novel Jane Eyre is given a contemporary twist as the story of Jane’s journey from Victorian hardship to independence and happiness works its magic on people today. A moving look at how deeply a book can affect readers nearly two centuries later.

“A joyful theatrical experience and one you will not see every day.” –Schenectady Daily Gazette review of Daniel Elihu Kramer’s Pride@Prejudice
