Jane Austen comes to Ashley! Come and see this magical production.

Anne Elliott is persuaded to reject Frederick Wentworth by her family and friends but when the Elliott's circumstances alter and Wentworth returns 8 years later, as a commended naval officer no less, old sparks are rekindled… But can either be convinced to give love a second chance?

Too many characters and not enough actors will see this much-loved Austen novel brought to life in a comedic and potentially hat-astrophic production. In a similarly choreographed, character-swapping style to our critically acclaimed productions of The Importance of Being Earnest (2018), The Three Musketeers (2020) and A Comedy of Errors (2022), audiences will love this truly unique adaptation!

NOTE: This event is in the Castle Grounds next to St Mary's Church, Ashley

Written by Jane Austen

Adapted by Ethan Taylor

Directed by Sarah Slator

Music by Simon Stallard

Tickets are £15 for adults and £10 for children.
