Images have been released showing the cast of Jane Eyre getting ready for opening night next month.

Sally Cookson's re-imagining of Charlotte Brontë's novel was first staged by the Bristol Old Vic last year, when the story was performed over two evenings. The production, which opens at the National Theatre on 8 September, will now be presented as a single performance.

Press materials state: "Almost 170 years on, 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 fulfilment on her own terms."
