REVIEWS ARE IN FOR JANE EYRE

★★★★
“One of the most compelling, intelligent adaptations of Jane Eyre I’ve ever seen… Short’s Jane has delightful resolute control, tempered with passion. Her silences are as good as anything she says too because this Jane thinks visibly. It’s a near perfect interpretation… This elegant, rather beautiful production is another triumph for Blackeyed Theatre and a real tribute to director Adrian McDougall”

SARDINES MAGAZINE

★★★★
“ A whirlwind of a production that tells the story of Charlotte Brontë’s classic novel with beautiful, intimate flair… Director Adrian McDougall has triumphed with a tight ensemble of actor-musicians who handle the text with impressive fluidity, moving through each scene with a wonderfully rich understanding of the emotional rhythms… overall this Jane Eyre is told beautifully and intimately – you’ll leave with your heart swelling ”

New title


Our latest title is TICKER by Tom Machell.

Ticker follows twenty-something Spencer, a Geordie millennial who is deeply in love with the inestimable Gabi. But Spencer’s life is torn apart by Gabi’s untimely - and unexplained - death. How can he even begin to cope with finding himself suddenly a prime suspect and a chief mourner? Themes of outsider grief and loneliness meet black-humour and frank dialogue, exploring male identity, toxic aggression, and how not talking about things can eventually lead to self-destruction. Written and Performed by Tom Machell.
