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.Praise for Dyad Productions:★★★★★ ‘A towering performance‘ (The Scotsman)★★★★★ ‘A luscious sweeping tale’ (The i)★★★★★ ‘Quite simply: astounding’ (Broadway Baby)★★★★★ ’Outstanding…gripping… Vaughan is never less than magnetic’ (Three Weeks)★★★★★ ‘If you haven’t seen Dyad Productions’ work before, you simply must’ (British Theatre Guide)‘Some of the most electrifying character work available, up to and including Berkoff’ (Fringe Review)THREE WEEKS Cumulative Body of Work Award-Winners, 2018Running time: 60 minutes (no interval)Age guidance: 16+
