With a cast headed by Adrian Lukis, better known to some as the roguish Mr Wickham, An Evening with Jane Austen will call at stunning Godmersham Park on 29th October. Godmersham was once the home of Jane Austen’s brother, Edward Knight, and is closed to the public, so this event is a unique opportunity to see inside the house.
Our show at Godmersham will mark the launch of the new £10 note featuring Miss Austen, and we are thrilled to return to Godmersham with a brand new production for 2017!
An Evening with Jane Austen offers audiences the opportunity to spend a magical evening in the company of Jane’s most memorable characters!
Performing duologues and readings from across Jane’s works, Caroline Langrishe (Lovejoy) and Adrian Lukis (Pride and Prejudice) bring her timeless writing effortlessly to life. These respected performers are accompanied by musicians whose interpretations of regency-era music give audiences a glimpse into the evocative sounds of Jane’s own household.
I will provide an introduction to the glittering Regency era in which Jane’s works are set, a time when fashion and society ruled supreme!
