Jane Austen "My Emma"

Event Date:

Author / Presenters: 
Lise Rodgers

To commemorate the 200th anniversary of the publication of “Emma” in 1816, this new production by Lise Rodgers reveals a more mature Jane, confident in her abilities as a novelist and as she turns 40, for the first
time taking an active role in managing her own affairs. Based on her letters of the period and of
course the novel itself, here is the opportunity to celebrate the folk of Highbury and none more
fascinating than Miss Emma Woodhouse herself.
