If you can't find a husband in Bath, you won't find one anywhere.
Captain Wentworth proposed to Anne eight years ago, he had only love
and ambition to offer. Talked out of accepting his proposal by her
family, Anne’s never quite got over her first love.
But now Wentworth is back. Rich, successful and single, the handsome Captain has been transformed into a serious catch. When circumstances bring the two face to face again, Anne Elliot is forced to confront the past. As old wounds reopen, will Wentworth’s resentment keep him away, and will Anne finally decide what she really wants?
In 2017, the bicentenary of PERSUASION’S publication and of Jane Austen’s death, this bold new adaptation brings all the sharp observation and quick wit of Austen’s novel to the stage, without a bonnet in sight.
