The Rosemary Branch Theatre presents Jane Austen’s
directed and adapted by Bryony J Thomson
Anne Elliot , at twenty seven , is no longer young and has no romantic prospects . Nearly eight years ago she was persuaded to break off her engagement to the dashing Frederick Wentworth , a naval officer with neither fortune or rank . What happens when they encounter each other again surpasses a satire of vanity and pretension and tells a story of love tinged with heartache , missed opportunities and what it means for a woman to make choices not based on what others think but what is in her heart .
Persuasion is Jane Austen’s last novel , completed 200 years ago in 1816 . In this new adaptation the book will spring from page to stage with a carefully handpicked cast of just six young professionals who will bring to life the unfeeling and silly sisters , the sympathetic grand dames , the bumbling brothers-in-law , the fatuous father , and of course the inscrutable Captain Wentworth and the woman who was persuadedd to give him up , Anne Elliot .
