From the creators of Dalloway, I, Elizabeth, The Unremarkable Death of Marilyn Monroe and Female Gothic.
Adapted & performed by Rebecca Vaughan
Directed by Guy Masterson
The much-loved Edinburgh sell-out hit (2009 & 2013), from the company that brought you Female Gothic, I, Elizabeth, The Diaries of Adam and Eve and The Unremarkable Death of Marilyn Monroe.
Thirteen of Jane Austen’s heroines come to life in this bold revisiting of some of literature’s most celebrated works. Using only Austen’s words, Rebecca Vaughan becomes Emma Woodhouse, Lizzy Bennet, Mrs Norris, Miss Bates and nine other beautifully observed women in critical moments from the major novels (including Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility and Emma) and lesser known or unfinished works. Directed by Olivier Award winner, Guy Masterson (Morecambe).
"Truly extraordinary…Rebecca Vaughan is one of the most exciting young performers on the British stage" (British Theatre Guide)
"A theatrical masterpiece… utterly faultless and vastly entertaining" (Three Weeks)
