Jane Austen's Persuasion
From the producers of 2017’s electric wartime drama Gabriel comes a brand new version of Jane Austen’s final novel Persuasion, adapted for the stage by acclaimed playwright Stephanie Dale and directed by Theatre6's award winning Kate McGregor.
Anne Elliot was young and in love. Engaged to the dashing but poor naval officer, Commander Wentworth, her ambitious family tore them apart. Years later, the tables have turned and a chance encounter could lead Anne towards the true love she has yearned for or a life forever alone.
Filled with music, drama, laughter and romance, Theatre6’s Persuasion is not to be missed.
