Stage is set at Stirling Castle for Brontë masterpiece

Posted: 15th June 2017

Stirling Castle is to provide the atmospheric backdrop for a dramatic adaptation of one of the most famous gothic romances of the 19th century.

Chapterhouse Theatre Company is bringing an open-air production of Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre to the castle this weekend (Saturday 17 June).

A bold and dynamic production of one of the classics of English literature, Jane Eyre uncovers the story of a woman whose independence and bravery shaped her life.

Audiences can lose themselves in this haunting and unconventional love story in the shadow of Stirling Castle as they follow the journey of the spirited heroine, watching as she faces life’s obstacles head-on, surviving poverty, injustice and the discovery of bitter betrayal before taking the ultimate decision to follow her heart.

Lorna Ewan, Head of Visitor Experience, Content and Learning at Historic Environment Scotland (HES), who manage Stirling Castle, said: “Drama and story-telling are at the heart of Stirling Castle’s history. Its Queen Anne Garden, overlooked by the royal palace, provides a magical venue for outdoor theatre productions.

“Jane Eyre is a fresh and inventive production which captures the spirit of the novel – it’s a must-see at the castle this summer.”

Jane Eyre takes place from 7.30pm – 9.45pm on Saturday 17th of June. Doors open at 6.45pm for 7.30pm start. Tickets are available online and on the door.
