Flushed by four years’ success from Edinburgh to Toronto to Auckland, comes New Zealander Penny Ashton’s collaboration with Jane Austen (deceased).

Join Miss Elspeth as she battles literary snobbery, cousin Horatio’s digestions and her mother’s nerves, armed only with a blushing countenance, excellent ukulele skills and being quite bright… you know… for a girl.

In this hilarious, one-(freakishly talented)-woman show, Penny tackles all of Austen’s characters with song, dance and appalling cross-stitching.

In this year, the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s death in Winchester, we are delighted to bring you the 5th great niece of Austen’s very own Irish born flirtation, Thomas Langlois Lefroy, in her award winning one woman show.

Weekly Best Theatre Award (Adelaide Fringe). Best Performance, Comedy, (Auckland Fringe). Best Visiting Production, Dunedin Theatre Awards. Best Solo Show (Victoria Fringe, BC). Patron’s Pick Winnipeg Fringe.
