"Vivid imagination was your creative art. Were you truly in love? Or just romantic heart?"
Austen the Musical explores Jane’s struggle to have her work published in a male dominated environment, her romances and her vow to reject a woman’s lifestyle in Georgian England. The stunning story of Jane Austen’s transition from a country parson’s daughter to one of the most read writers in English Literature. Austen The Musical is full of stunning songs with moments of joy, despair and heart-wrenching sadness.
The fresh, new, musical production has played extended runs at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Jane Austen Festival, York New Musical Festival, and a small tour - all to sell out crowds. It now heads out nationwide on its 2017/18 UK Tour from October 2017.
"Rob Winlow has created a tale that will be magical for Austen’s many fans... This is a fun, yet gentle, musical frolic from a bygone age when manners and misogyny were apparently a feature of both business and the courtship ritual."
