See it if Hilarious and inventive You enjoy Jane Austin Like a giggle Enjoy period drama
Don't see it if You don’t enjoy period drama You don’t like loud music
Jane Austen meets Lizzo in Jeff James’s bold contemporary take on Persuasion, which swaps bonnets and balls for bikinis, pop songs and a foam party. It makes this exhilarating production...
Quite what Jane Austen would make of this very 21st-century updating of her final novel is anyone’s guess, but one thing’s for certain: It’s as innovative and funny an interpretation as you’re likely to see.
This is a joyfully silly take on Persuasion – with just enough sense (and sensibility) to hold the whole thing together...The ensemble cast perform with comic panache, but there are grains of truth beneath all the grandstanding.
The play examines the highs and lows of love and marriage, as well as the choices women face concerning it, in a lively and vibrant production full of surprises.
