A delightful stage adaptation of Jane Austen's earliest novel.
Catherine Morland loves a good novel and the more ‘horrid’ it is the better.
At 17, she is taken by her aunt to Bath where she encounters the social whirl denied her at home. When Catherine accepts an invitation to the Tilneys' country seat at Northanger Abbey, lurid images from her favourite gothic novel The Mysteries of Udolpho threaten to overwhelm her. However, all misunderstandings are eventually resolved and, as in all the best Jane Austen novels, the young heroine finally gets her man…
Adapted by acclaimed Austen specialist Tim Luscombe, this is a gripping sojourn into Regency era society. The production originates from England's only surviving Regency theatre, now owned by The National Trust.
