Two hundred years after the much-loved author’s death, Jane Austen’s comic masterpiece, Emma, takes us on a joyful journey of warmth and wit, romantic schemes, and mistaken intentions.

Young, bright and beautiful, Emma Woodhouse has the world at her feet, or at least the small part of Surrey in which she lives. 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 great surprise, the more she tries to manipulate the destinies of others, the less success she has, until she herself, determined never to wed, is forced to face her own feelings and perhaps even dare to love another…

Keeping faithfully to the original, Tim Luscombe (Northanger Abbey, Mansfield Park and Persuasion) relates Austen’s story with verve and style, transporting famous characters vividly to the stage, including the dashing Mr Knightley, the comic hypochondriac Mr Woodhouse and the sublimely verbose Miss Bates!

Celebrate summer and pre-order a delicious Ploughman's Supper to enjoy before the show, inspired by your favourite picnic foods. Click here for more information.
