Marking 200 years since Jane Austen’s death and keeping faithfully to the original story, this new production is adapted by Tim Luscombe (Mansfield Park). This warm and witty retelling of Austen’s masterpiece transports her famous characters vividly to the stage, including the dashing Mr. Knightley, the comic hypochondriac Mr. Woodhouse and the sublimely dull Miss Bates!

Young, bright and beautiful, Emma Woodhouse has the world at her feet. When the dashing Mr Elton comes to town she decides to take it on herself to perform the role of matchmaker to her new friend Harriet Smith. But to Emma’s great surprise, the more she tries to manipulate the destinies of others, the less success she has. And she herself, determined never to wed, is forced to face her own feelings and perhaps even dare to love another.

Duration: 2 hours 40mins with interval

Presented by The Production Exchange By Jane Austen In a new adaptation by Tim Luscombe Directed by Colin Blumenau Designed by Libby Watson
