About 400 people had been due to watch the production by the National Theatre and the Bristol Old Vic on Thursday night at the Theatre Street venue before it was announced on stage that the performance was unable to take place that night.

However it was confirmed today that the shows tonight and tomorrow will run as scheduled.

A statement from the National Theatre and Norwich Theatre Royal said: 'The decision to cancel last evening's performance of Jane Eyre at the Theatre Royal, Norwich was taken when a member of the acting company had a flare up of a pre-existing tendon condition of the foot.

'This occurred moments before curtain-up and due to the physical nature of the production and for this reason only, it was decided that it was not possible for them to perform.
