Sorry, this show is over.


In a time before Tinder, where courting took conversation, social standing, and a lot less swiping came ‘Persuasion’.

Anne Elliot aged 19, is ‘persuaded’ away from a marriage proposal from Captain Wentworth by her family and friends because of class standing, fortune and rank.

Seven Years later when Captain Wentworth returns from the Navy, will he still have eyes for Anne?

Or will her friend have the chance she cast aside?

A satirical portrayal of the vanity of English Society, romance and class standing.

A 1920’s play adaptation by Tanya Wheeler of the best selling novel “Persuasion” by Jane Austen, Presented by the Acting Collective Directed by Terry Hooper.

-Celebrating 200 years of Jane Austen.
