A Celebration of Jane Austen With Robert Powell and Susan Jameson
In celebration of the bicentenary decade of Jane Austen’s published works, much loved actors Robert Powell and Susan Jameson take you into Jane Austen’s world…
There will be readings from Robert and Susan interspersed with some beautiful music from pianist Christine Croshaw and flautist Clive Conway.
‘For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbours, and laugh at them in our turn.’ (Pride and Prejudice)
No writer, with the exception of Shakespeare, stands higher in public esteem and affection than Jane Austen. This celebration is for those who have always loved her, and for those who would like to know more about the enigmatic and shadowy figure behind the popular image of bonnets, tea and gentility.
Jane Austen continues to fascinate us because she reveals human nature with all its delicious quirks and foibles. From the rumbustious delights of her juvenile works to the extraordinary explosion of vitality in her last and uncompleted novel, Sanditon, we take you on a colourful and revealing journey through the life and works of this most paradoxical and bewitching author.
