Thursday 18th July 2019

7.30pm

Winchester Discovery Centre 

A literary treat for Jane Austen fans!
 
A dramatic and diverting solo literary recital of readings from Jane and Cassandra Austen's letters, prose and poetry revealing the relationship of the two sisters. This performance will on the 202nd anniversary of Jane’s death.
 
Compiled and performed by Hampshire-based actress and speaker Rowan Suart, content includes extracts from Jane’s Juvenilia works and short stories, her novel Persuasion and Miss Austen poem, and Cassandra's letter to their niece following Jane's death.
 
Fresh from Alton’s Jane Austen Regency Week, and prior to Bath’s Jane Austen Festival 2018, this presentation provides a unique illustration of Jane Austen’s life from an early age and her relationship with Cassandra, as well as her preoccupation with sisters in her prose.
 
Audience reviews:
 
‘Mesmerising – a delight and needs to be seen’
‘So much more than a reading, it is a full performance’
‘An excellent selection of original pieces and extracts’
