Hungarian Jane Eyre Illustrations and Adaptation

Bronteana reader Ancsa writes to tell us about her blog containing some wonderful illustrations she produced of Jane Eyre, such as the one at right.

The illustration is based on a Hungarian stage adaptation of Jane Eyre. I would love to know more about it, because it seems like one of the most unusual adaptations I have come across, from what I can gather from the production photos. It looks like the entire show takes place in bed:

Sir, please be serious now, I must make the bed!

Jane wins in the end, after knocking Mr Rochester off the bed.

The gypsy scene, or 'this little piggy.'

There's something going on in that gypsy scene thats interesting...who's the third person reclining behind Jane and the gypsy Rochester and why do they all seem to be in bed??!

Yes, and what's Sean Connery doing in the illustration?

ChrisV said...

I'm definitely diggin' the Stormtroopers. With all those Star Wars connections, I'll admit, that one is a surprise.

The third person is Miss Ingram. If you are interested, for more info about the play, check this site: http://bronteblog.blogspot.com/2007/04/hungarian-jane-eyre-reviewed.html
