After Mrs Rochester

After Mrs Rochester $14.99

Polly Teale

Published by Nick Hern Books

2 Male 6 Female

A dramatisation of both the tortured life of writer Jean Rhys, but also of her most famous book - The Wide Sargasso Sea, a sequel to Jane Eyre

Jean Rhys was obsessed with Jane Eyre - and more particularly with Bertha Mason, the first Mrs Rochester and the 'madwoman in the attic'

Placing Bertha on stage throughout as Jean's alter ego, Polly Teale's remarkable dramatisation of Rhys's life gives full vent to this obsession - which was to prove the catalyst for The Wide Sargasso Sea
