Latest shows to watch online

The Broadway cinema Letchworth are excited to announce that our wonderful friends Blackeyed Theatre, the UK’s leading touring theatre company, will be streaming their thrilling production of Jane Eyre free online.

Featuring live music, the acclaimed production was a huge success at Broadway last season so if you missed it, or would like to experience the exceptional talent of Blackeyed Theatre again, now is your chance!

Captivating, brooding and intensely powerful, Jane Eyre is a moving and unforgettable portrayal of one woman’s quest for equality and freedom and lives as one of the great triumphs of storytelling. 

It will premiere on Youtube on Sunday 10 May at 19:30 and it will be available to watch free of charge until Sunday 17 May at 23:30.
