AN ADAPTATION of Jane Austen’s classic novel Emma heads to Malvern’s Priory Park next month.
Jenny Wren Productions will delve into the dating scene of the early 19th century in Martin Millar’s and Doon MacKichan’s adaptation of Emma.
Emma constantly tries to pair off her unfortunate friend Harriet Smith with unsuitable men but is convinced that, for herself, the single life is the only way.
As Jane Austen writes, members of her family become her characters; blushing heroines, dashing suitors, dastardly cads and many more, bringing her story of the ultimate matchmaker to mischievous life.
The open-air show comes to town on August 4 and starts at 7pm.
Guests are urged to bring blankets and chairs as they are not provided.
