Overview

Lose yourself in Jane Austen’s most romantic comedy, Persuasion, with this beautiful, witty and wonderfully emotional production by the award-winning Theatre6

Anne Elliot was young and in love. Swept off her feet by the dashing but poor naval officer, Captain Wentworth, she devastatingly rejects his marriage proposal because of her selfish society-obsessed family. Several years later and Wentworth has returned from sea. Will a chance encounter lead Anne back to her true love, or to a life forever alone?

Adapted for the stage by acclaimed playwright Stephanie Dale, directed by Theatre6's award winning Kate McGregor, with an original score composed by Maria Haïk Escudero, this production features a talented cast of actor musicians and is a masterclass of story-telling awash with love, loss and longing.

Running time 2 hours and 25 minutes including an interval
