Jane Austen at Home
Wednesday 13th September, 7pm-8.30pm
2017 will mark the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s death and to celebrate her life and work, join us for a special costumed performance consisting entirely of Jane Austen’s words.
With the setting of the Saloon in Holkham Hall, this one-woman show celebrates the variety and wit of her writings, with extracts from her memoirs, letters, juvenilia, poetry and novels and takes us into the attitudes, imagination and sensations of those who lived in country houses and rectories in the early nineteenth century. It will include much of her perceptive (often satirical) observation of the social life of the English county families. The extracts also capture her warm-heartedness and affection.
Tickets: £18, including a glass of wine.
