Austen’s Women are back – in a brand-new show!

Devil-may-care Lady Susan, the coquettish black widow, hunting down not one, but two, fortunes; oppressed, rebellious daughter Frederica, long-suffering sister-in-law Catherine, family matriarch Mrs De Courcy and insouciant best friend, Alicia. Return to the Regency (or rather Georgian era) in this darkly comic tale of society and the women trapped within it; their struggles, their desires, their temptations and manipulations – and at the vanguard, Lady Susan: charming, scheming, witty and powerful, taking on society and making it her own. But has she met her match?

Based on Jane Austen’s first full-length work from 1794,aand created entirely from letters, the piece is performed by Rebecca Vaughan and directed by Andrew Margerison. Recommended age: 10+
