A whimsical window into the magnificent mind of Jane Austen.
Seldom can it happen that something is not a little disguised, or a little mistaken."
– Jane Austen

Jane Austen’s life was censored by the patriarchy and romanticised by popular culture. Why did her family burn her letters? How and why did she create? Created/curated from an intergenerational feminist perspective, this new work from old collides elements of music and verbatim theatre within a dreamscape.

An ensemble piece with three actors playing Jane, and characters from Pride and Prejudice, with songs from her private collections, this play invites you to immerse yourself in Jane’s magnificent mind; bringing what you know about her, her novels, and her meaning, to the space; and maybe to discover more.
