From Dyad Productions, the award-winning creators of Female Gothic, Christmas Gothic, and A Room of One's Own, Austen's Women are back in a brand-new show!

Devil-may-care Lady Susan, the coquettish black widow, hunting down not one, but two, fortunes; oppressed, rebellious daughter Frederica, long-suffering sister-in-law Catherine, family matriarch Mrs De Courcy, and insouciant best friend Alicia.

Return to the Regency (or rather, Georgian) in this darkly comic tale of society and the women trapped within it, their struggles, desires, temptations, and manipulations – and at the vanguard, Lady Susan: charming, scheming, witty, and powerful; taking on society and making it her own. But has she met her match?

Based on Jane Austen's first full-length work from 1794, and created entirely from letters, the piece is performed by Rebecca Vaughan and directed by Andrew Margerison.

Created in collaboration with The Old Town Hall, Hemel Hempstead.
