A one woman musical that lovingly sends up all things Jane Austen and won a theatrical prize against a field of 1,000 entrants at the Adelaide Fringe is coming to Greenwich Theatre, London.
New Zealand star Penny Ashton brings a full cast of Austenesque characters to life with song, dance and appalling cross-stitching in this eagerly awaited UK tour of the hilarious Promise and Promiscuity.
"PRIDE AND PREJUDICE GONE WILD IN THE BEST WAY" Rip it Up, Adelaide.
Flushed by four years of success, from Edinburgh to Toronto to Auckland, comes New Zealander Penny Ashton's collaboration with Jane Austen (deceased). Follow the fortunes of Miss Elspeth as she battles literary snobbery, cousin Horatio's digestions and her mother's nerves, armed only with a blushing countenance, excellent ukulele skills and being quite bright, you know... for a girl. In this hilarious, one-(freakishly talented)-woman show, Penny tackles all of Austen's characters with song, dance and appalling cross-stitching.
In this, the year of the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen's death, celebrate her life with the 5th great niece of Austen's own flirtation, Thomas Langlois Lefroy, in an irreverent yet fond reimagining of one of the world's most beloved authors.
End Date: October 14, 2017.
