Production History

Jane Eyre  | Open: 02/14/08 Close: 03/02/08
Mergatroyd Productions presents JANE EYRE, one of the greatest love stories of English literature. In this new theatrical adaptation by N.G. McClernan, the story opens with Rochester's plaintive cry for his beloved Jane and unfolds in flashbacks to reveal the heroine's transformation from a mistreated little girl into a woman in control of her own destiny. True to the original work, JANE EYRE illuminates the timeless story of the lovers as they struggle to overcome fate.

Mary Murphy (Artists Descending a Staircase) and Greg Oliver Bodine* (writer / performer of solo adaptation of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol) perform as Jane Eyre and Edward Rochester. Alice Connorton* (Broadway: National Actor's Theatre revival of Inherit the Wind), Bruce Barton* (Busted Jesus Comix, Blue Coyote Theater Company) Nat Cassidy* (The Rise and Fall of Miles & Milo, Fringe NYC) and Hannah Snyder-Beck (The Seventeenth of June, Mint Theatre) round out the cast.

The creative team includes Viviane Galloway (costume design), Annalisa Loeffler (dialect coach), Reagan Wilson (assistant director/choreographer) Charles Jeffreys (photography) and Corrine Fuhrman (hair/makeup.) The stage manager is Amanda Elaan.

Playwright N.G. McClernan is the founder of NYCPlaywrights ( Her plays include Tam Lin, Monkey's Paw 2000 (Midtown International Theatre Festival), The Slash (Looking Glass Theatre), Blessings of the Sun God (Co-Founder), New Rules (Philadelphia Fringe Festival) and I See London (The Brick Playhouse, Philadelphia).

Jane Eyre has grown up orphaned and unloved. At age eighteen she takes a job as governess for the enigmatic Edward Rochester.
