Two hundred years on, her works continue to speak for the yearning heart as much as they did when they were written -so just how much has really changed for women since? In a solo performance of extraordinary virtuosity– using only Austen’ swords–actor Rebecca! Vaughan answers this question by boldly  revisiting the most rewarding moments! from all six major! novels – including Pride & Prejudice, Sense& & Sensibility and Emma – plus those in lesser known works such as Austen’s Juvenilia and the unfinished Sanditon. This brilliant, illuminating and – above all –entertaining evocation of  Jane Austen’s works is a real treat for Austen lovers and the perfect prime for the uninitiated. Curtains up 8pm.
