From the award-winning creators of Austen’s Women, A Christmas Carol, I, Elizabeth, Female
Gothic, Christmas Gothic, and A Room of One’s Own.
Austen’s Women are back - in a brand-new 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.
Return to the Regency (or rather, Georgian) in this 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, and created entirely from letters, the piece
is performed by Rebecca Vaughan and directed by Andrew Margerison.
Created in collaboration with The Old Town Hall, Hemel Hempstead.
