Summary Note Amanda Hale and Tom Burke star in a brand-new BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of Charlotte Bronte's most beloved novel, adapted by Rachel Joyce Orphan Jane learns at an early age that self-control is the surest means of retaining self-respect in adversity. It is a lesson that serves her well in the years ahead as she endures the misery of life with her cruel, uncaring aunt, followed by the harsh regime at Lowood Institution, a charity school for poor children. After taking the post of governess at Thornfield Hall, she meets the master of the house, the brooding, enigmatic Edward Rochester, and finds herself falling in love with him. It seems as if happiness may finally be within her grasp - but a series of strange events leads her to believe that Rochester is concealing a dark secret. When the truth is revealed, the heartbroken Jane will need all her inner strength and resilience to face up to it ... Dramatised for radio by bestselling novelist Rachel Joyce (The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry), this iconic love story stars Amanda Hale as Jane and Tom Burke as Rochester. Suffused with romance, passion, mystery and danger, it is a spellbinding tale that is as real and relevant today as when it was first published in 1847. Produced and Directed by Tracey Neale Sound Design by Caleb Knightley Studio Managers: Keith Graham, Anne Bunting, Dougal Patmore and Jenni Burnett Production Coordinator: Cynthia Fagan.
