Jane Eyre Book Club
March 6 and April 3, 2017, at 7 p.m. at Joseph-Beth Booksellers' Rookwood location
This season, in partnership with Joseph-Beth Booksellers, the Playhouse is launching a book club for audience members interested in better understanding the process of adapting a book from the page to the stage. Playhouse book club participants are invited to attend special discussion events. We’ll talk about the book itself: the plot and characters, the overarching themes, how you might imagine it translates to a theatrical setting and even the challenges you see in adapting the story. Discussions that take place after you’ve seen the play focus on what excited and surprised you and how members of the artistic team approached the show.
Books can be purchased or ordered through Joseph-Beth. Discussion events are free, but registration is required in advance through the Playhouse Box Office at 513-421-3888.
Playhouse Perspectives: Jane Eyre, Feminist Icon
Monday, March 13, at 7:00 p.m.
In Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre, Jane states: "Women feel just as men feel; they need exercise for their faculties and a field for their efforts as much as their brothers do." Such bold statements, coupled with her remarkable defiance and independence, make Jane one of literature’s finest feminist characters.
Discover how she subverted the social expectations of the Victorian Era to become the feminist icon we perceive her as today. Join us for an in-depth discussion about the historical and cultural context of Jane Eyre at Playhouse Perspectives on Monday, March 13 at 7p.m. at the Playhouse.
This event is free and open to the public, but space is limited, so reserve your spot through the Playhouse Box Office at 513-421-3888. The Playhouse Perspectives series is supported by a generous grant from Roderick and Barbara Barr.
