A joyful journey of warmth, wit, romance and mistaken intentions, Jane Austen’s Emma is one of the all-time classics.
It’s set to charm audiences at the Arts Theatre from 4 to 8 July in a production that stays faithful to the source, relating Austen’s story with verve and style.
Young, bright and beautiful, Emma Woodhouse has the world at her feet. When the dashing Mr Elton comes to town, she decides to perform the role of matchmaker to her new friend Harriet Smith. But to Emma’s surprise, the more she tries to manipulate the destinies of others, the less success she has, until she is forced to face her feelings and even dare to love.
Tickets start at £18 and shows take place at 7.45pm, plus matinees on the Thursday and Saturday.
