The National Theatre Live (NT Live) series at Bucknell University will continue on Sunday, Feb. 14, at 1 p.m. at the Campus Theatre in Lewisburg with a screening of a 2015 broadcast of Charlotte Brontë's classic Jane Eyre. The performance was first staged by Bristol Old Vic last year and is directed by Sally Cookson.

Admission prices are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors, $5 for students with an ID or $10 without.  Tickets are only sold at the door and patrons must be at least 15 years old. Campus Theatre doors open at 12:30 p.m.

Almost 170 years old, Charlotte Brontë's story of the trailblazing Jane is as inspiring as ever. This bold and dynamic production uncovers one woman's fight for freedom and fulfillment on her own terms.

Plot
From her beginnings as a destitute orphan, Jane Eyre's spirited heroine faces life's obstacles head-on, surviving poverty, injustice and the discovery of bitter betrayal before taking the ultimate decision to follow her heart.

About NT Live
NT Live productions are screened in more than 2000 venues worldwide. Cameras are brought to a theatre one evening, and that live performance is seen via satellite throughout the world. U.S. theatres generally delay the broadcasts until the evening, or show the production on different days. These encore screenings are the original live satellite feeds; no editing takes place between the time of transmission and showing.

The National Theatre screenings are sponsored by the Bucknell University Departments of Art & Art History, Classics & Ancient Mediterranean Studies, English and Theatre & Dance, along with the Bucknell Arts Council, the Bucknell Innovation Group and the Office of the Provost.

May 15 - Hangmen

Academy Award® winner Martin McDonagh's new play takes place in a small pub in the northern English town of Oldham, where Harry is something of a local celebrity.
