Beverley’s Georgian festival will feature a stage adaptation of Jane Austen’s posthumously published novel, Lady Susan, written by local writers, Mary Aherne and Sue Parr.
Other Lives Productions has engaged two professionally trained, Beverley actors, Jessica Duffield and Annie Kirkman, to perform the delightfully wicked story of the widowed, husband-seeking heroine, Lady Susan.
When Catherine Vernon receives an open-ended visit from the infamous widow of her late brother-in-law, the effect of Lady Susan’s manipulative charms threatens the tranquillity of Catherine’s family.
Sue Parr says;
“Lady Susan, a character flawed by arrogance and self-absorption, considers knowledge of the Arts as merely a means to secure a husband. Based on deceit, child exploitation and jealously, the novel discreetly comments on the importance of education for women in Georgian society .”
The show’s director, Ellie Claughton , said;
“I am extremely excited to be involved in the Beverley Georgian Festival and a production on my home turf and hope Lady Susan will reflect the vast and fascinating history of the Georgian era; a period which is close to the heart of our town.”
Tickets £15, from Beverley Tourist Information Centre. Profits to be donated to East Riding Theatre.
