To mark the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s death, Audible presents an all-star dramatisation of the author’s light-hearted gothic satire, Northanger Abbey
Produced by Audible’s Grammy-award winning Audible Studios, Northanger Abbey stars Emma Thompson, Lily Cole, Douglas Booth, Jeremy Irvine, Eleanor Tomlinson, Ella Purnell and Anna Chancellor amongst others.
A coming-of-age tale for the young and naïve 17-year-old Catherine Morland, Northanger Abbey takes a decidedly comical look at themes of class, family, love and literature. Revelling in the sensationalist – and extremely popular – gothic fiction of her day, the story follows Catherine out of Bath to the lofty manor of the neighbouring Tilneys where her overactive imagination gets to work, constructing an absurd and melodramatic explanation for the death of Mrs Tilney which threatens to jeopardise her newly forged friendships.
Northanger Abbey is available to order now at www.audible.co.uk/northangerabbey (one credit for Audible members, £19.59 for non-members or free with Audible’s 30-day trial).
