Celebrating 200 Years 29
Jan

By Open Air Theatre

Jane Austen Chawton

This week in January 1813 saw the publication of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.

In this special 200th anniversary year we are presenting Simon Reade’s stage adaptation of this ultimate romantic comedy.

Did you know…that Jane’s older brother, James, was an aspiring playwright - so even as a child she was surrounded by theatre and plays.

With reduced price previews 20 – 24 June, the play runs until 20 July.
