‘Young Jane” – a dramatisation of Jane Austen’s early work

Jane  Austen

When Jane Austen was a teenager she wrote many plays and stories for the amusement of her friends and family.  Her stories parody the literary excesses and affectations of the sentimental novels popular at the time, and her writing is funny, tough and absurd, hinting at the quality and wit of the mature novels to come.

Several of these stories have been dramatised by Cecily O’Neill. They will be performed by Playgirls, the women’s play reading group, assisted by friends and partners. This staged reading is a follow-up to the success of the American Evening presented by Playgirls last year.

‘Young Jane’ is on Saturday 26 October at 7.45pm and again on Sunday at 3pm.  Tickets for this rehearsed reading are available here.  Ticket price £5.

Telephone booking is available on 0844 8700 887 at 5p per minute. Booking hours are 9.00am – 8.00pm weekdays & 9.00am – 6.00pm on Saturdays. An additional £1.50 is payable for posted tickets.
