Austen’s Women: Lady Susan, Stamford Arts Centre

Mar 21
21st March 2024

Austen’s Women are back - in a brand-new show and coming to Stamford Arts Centre this March with Devil-may-care Lady Susan.

From the award-winning creators of Austen’s Women, A Christmas CarolI, ElizabethFemale GothicChristmas Gothic, and A Room of One’s Own.

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.
