Calling Jane Austen Fans!
There is an exciting collaboration and conversation that will meet your palette and entertain you at the same time.
Join me as I will be in conversation for a talk titled Jane Austen Dramatized, where I will discussing Jane Austen’s place in the theatrical canon and the many, varied representations of her novels on stage . . . past, present, and future, with playwright Kate Hamill, and scholar Devoney Looser.
Join us for an evening of conversation, rational and play-full, at this one-night-only online benefit event — all proceeds from which will help to fund the workshop of PERSUASION, a new play by Sarah Rose Kearns, at The Warwick Institute of Culture.
What makes an adaptation satisfying? What makes it successful as a work of art in its own right? What can theatre-makers’ takes on Austen tell us about the novels themselves? And what do these stage-Austens reveal about their own lives-and-times?
Fans of Austen don’t want to miss this one! The cost of the event is $26.00 but the money goes to support the Persuasion Workshop Fund. Persuasion is a project of The Holy Theatre, a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. The Holy Theatre’s founding Board of Directors consists of Jennyvi Dizon, Sarah Rose Kearns, Elise Pallay, Lisa Tagliaferri, Yoly Ward-Zululeta, and Lena Yasutake.
Thank you to Sarah Rose Kearns for setting this up!
