Northanger Abbey follows unlikely heroine Catherine Morland to Bath where she is introduced into Society and the delights of the Gothic novel. We see her falling in love and watch with horror as her overactive imagination gets the better of her. It is a heartwarming love story with laugh-out-loud humour and melodramatic Gothic horror!

We have tried to remain as faithful to the original work as possible, taking the vast majority of the dialogue verbatim from the novel. This, combined with the use of puppetry, has made the production a favourite of Austen lovers and sceptics alike!

“…one of the best and truest treatments,
bar none, in any dramatic medium…”

Libby Purves
