After Mrs Rochester

Duke of York's Theatre
Directed by Polly Teale
Produced by Maidstone Productions

This award-winning play revolves around two extraordinary characters - author Jean Rhys and Mrs Rochester, the madwoman in the attic in Jane Eyre. Rhys gave Mrs Rochester her own life in the 1957 novel Wide Sargasso Sea, and this compelling play explores how she developed her highly acclaimed story, using her own experiences and personality to bring to life a character she was obsessed with. This is a haunting and emotional piece of theatre.
