Jane Eyre

26 October
National Theatre

She is not poor
as they would have her be,
plain as a pikestaff,
green as the woods in spring.
She has a heart, beating
and bold beneath her petticoats,
and a voice of her own
though you would not
expect to hear it sing.
She is a woman lost
upon a rocky sea, friendless
and cut from what she had
of family, but though
she may flounder
she won't give in,
her hope burns bright
in spite of everything.

Jane Eyre runs at the National Theatre until 10 January 2016
