Directed by Guy Masterson
Thirteen of Jane Austen's most celebrated female characters are brought to life in this bold revisiting of the most exciting moments from Austen's ‘two inches of ivory'.
In scenes of high comedy and moments of profound pathos, Lizzy Bennet, Emma Woodhouse, Marianne Dashwood and many more, fall in love, alienate their friends and commit notorious improprieties. Using only Austen's words, Rebecca Vaughan offers a brilliant and illuminating distillation of 19th century feminism.
