29 June 2024
6-9pm

Join This Is My Theatre at Chawton House for a potentially hat-astrophic production of Jane Austen's Persuasion.

Join This Is My Theatre at Chawton House for a potentially hat-astrophic production of Jane Austen's Persuasion.

Anne Elliott is persuaded to reject Frederick Wentworth by her family and friends but when the Elliott's circumstances alter and Wentworth returns 8 years later, as a commended naval officer no less, old sparks are rekindled… But can either be convinced to give love a second chance?

Too many characters and not enough actors will see this much-loved Austen novel brought to life in a comedic and potentially hat-astrophic production. In a similarly choreographed, character-swapping style to our critically acclaimed productions of The Importance of Being Earnest (2018), The Three Musketeers (2020) and A Comedy of Errors (2022), audiences will love this truly unique adaptation!

Critics have said of our previous hat-astrophic adaptations:Brighton Source on The Comedy of Errors“A gem of a production… Energetic, ingenious and thoughtful drama!”Living Magazines on The Three Musketeers“Artfully designed and cleverly executed… a total joy!”
