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.

Adapted by Ethan Taylor

Directed by Sarah Slator  

Music by Simon Stallard
