About After Mrs Rochester
Wide Sargasso Sea is the prequel to Brontë’s all-time classic Jane Eyre and tells the story of Mrs Rochester – the madwoman in the attic. Rhys’ novel was published in 1966, a mere 119 years after the original. It is significant that Rhys’ own life has been so fascinating that, as opposed to merely adapting the novel for the stage, Polly Teale chose to produce this biopic, charting her travels around the world and her life-long obsession with Brontë’s masterpiece.
