Jane Eyre

“One scene flows fluidly into the next, on a shadowy, stage that is largely left bare. Instead of lavish sets, designer John Napier often uses just a single prop - a window, a blackboard, a branch of withered leaves - to set the scene, paired with photographic images that are projected onto scrims and moving panels. It's an elliptical, evocative approach that makes you feel as though you're being drawn into Jane's memories; it also solves the vast logistical problems of staging a detailed novel like "Jane Eyre".”
