CATEGORY:

Description:

From the
award-winning creators of Austen’s Women, A Christmas Carol, I,
Elizabeth
, Female Gothic, Christmas Gothic,and A
Room of One’s Own.

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) 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, and created entirely from letters,
the piece is performed by Rebecca Vaughan and directed by Andrew
Margerison
 

Created in
collaboration with The Old Town Hall, Hemel Hempstead.
