Adaptations (Literature)

But now Wentworth is back. Rich, successful and single, the handsome Captain has been transformed into a serious catch. When circumstances bring the two face to face again, Anne Elliot is forced to confront the past. As old wounds reopen, will Wentworth’s resentment keep him away, and will Anne finally decide what she really wants?

In 2017, the bicentenary of PERSUASION’S publication and of Jane Austen’s death, this bold new adaptation brings all the sharp observation and quick wit of Austen’s novel to the stage, without a bonnet in sight.

THE STAGE ★★★★

"Not only does Austen suddenly seem our contemporary, we start to seem like hers. Her characters are like people again - not just literary tropes and lace fans"
