Dyad Productions in association with Theatre Tours International presents ‘Austen’s Women’ at The Source Arts Centre on Thursday September 25th.

Adapted & performed by Rebecca Vaughan, directed by Olivier Award winner, Guy Masterson (Morecambe), ‘Austen’s Women’ brings thirteen of Jane Austen’s heroines to life.

Rebecca Vaughan (I, Elizabeth) becomes Emma Woodhouse, Lizzy Bennet, Mrs Norris, Miss Bates and others in various different scenes from Jane Austen’s novels, such as Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Emma and more.

Jane Austen created some of literature’s most celebrated characters, defining her era, sex and class.

Two hundred years on, her works continue to speak for the yearning heart as much as they did when they were written - so just how much has really changed for women since?

In a solo performance using only Austen’s words, actor Rebecca Vaughan answers this question by boldly revisiting the most rewarding moments from all six major novels.

This brilliant, illuminating and above all entertaining evocation of Jane Austen’s works is a treat for Austen lovers and the perfect primer for the uninitiated. Take a step back in time to the 19th century as Jane Austen’s famous words and characters unfold before your eyes.
