Hampshire-based theatre company, 2TimeTheatre, presents the world premiere of Meeting Miss Austen by local author Cecily O'Neill at the Winchester Discovery Centre as part of the Winchester Festival.

In these plays, based on Austen’s Juvenilia, we hear the voice of the teenage Jane, exuberant, saucy and often surreal in tales of love, loss, vice and victuals…

'The company partook of an elegant entertainment. After which, the bottle being pretty briskly pushed about, the whole party was carried home dead drunk.' (Jack and Alice)

Cecily O’Neill is the artistic director of 2TimeTheatre, and the author of ‘Young Jane’, recently published by 2TimeTheatre.   She works internationally with playwrights, actors, teachers and students, and is the author of several influential books on drama in education. Adaptations include Venus and Adonis (Winchester Festival 2016) Drinking with Dorothy (Players Theatre, New York, 2015) and The Golden Apple (Dublin Theatre Festival, 2008).
