Austen’s Women: LADY SUSAN

13 September @ 19:30 - 21:30


Performed By: Rebecca Vaughan
Directed By: Andrew Margerison

Friday 13th September 2024: 7:30pm

From the award-winning creators of Austen’s Women, I, Elizabeth, Christmas Gothic, and A Room of One’s Own. Austen’s Women are back – in a brand-new solo comedy 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.

A darkly comic tale of society and the women trapped within it; their struggles, their desires, their 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, this piece is performed by Rebecca Vaughan and directed by Andrew Margerison.
