"Emma" by Jane Austen

Jane Austen

"Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever, and rich, with a comfortable home and happy disposition, seemed to unite some of the best blessings of existence; and had lived nearly twenty-one years in the world with very little to distress or vex her."

"The Company" brings another classic tale to life, adapted and directed by Alan Wade Jane Austen declared that Emma Woodhouse was perhaps her most disagreeable heroine, interfering with the lives of others. The novel and this play chart her plotting and intrigues and the effect they have on those around her. As always Austen's wit and grasp of human nature are exemplary.

The production will run Wednesday 11th – Saturday 14th February 2015 in the Drama Studio Glossop Road doors open at 7pm for a prompt 7.30pm start.
