Presenting JANE EYRE

je-final-graphicFour years ago all for One staged Jane Austen’s Emma, a literary classic. For the first time, our cast members actively participated in the research process, and the result was so much valuable material that afO created a blog site, Creating Emma, on which to house it. Our audience expressed interest in reading the extended dramaturgy. Ultimately we created this blog, all for One: Behind the Scenes, in order to present a fuller version of our research, production design process, etc. for our audience’s enjoyment and future reference.

This week we have begun to work on our 2016 season finale, an original adaptation of a giant of classic British literature:  Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre.  Over the course of the next two months, we will be publishing a number of research articles contributed by cast members, for your pleasure and edification…and in anticipation of the opening of Jane Eyre on April 29.

Here, first of all, is the cast, most of whom play multiple roles. An asterix indicates an afO Home Stage debut.
