Gothic romance comes to the Garden this July
Gothic romance comes to the Garden this July when Heartbreak Productions present Jane Austen’s ‘Northanger Abbey’ – following the journey of Catherine Morland as she falls in love with her hero, Henry Tilney.
If you are ready to indulge in some fantasy, be it romance, intrigue or even something a bit darker, join us at our "Class for Aspiring Novelists". Hosted by Jane Austen (and Heartbreak Productions), let your imagination run wild at this outdoor theatre performance. But do bear in mind - the imagination can be a powerful beast…
When an ordinary young lady is whisked away from her ordinary village home to make her entrance into society in bustling Bath, she is suddenly living out the fantasy life her favourite novelists wrote about. However, one shouldn't believe everything one reads...should one?
Faux friendships and real romance help to define this as an Austen classic. Social commentary, humour and parody ensure that Heartbreak Production’s outdoor performance of Northanger Abbey will be the perfect summer evening’s entertainment.
Recommended age: 8+
Running time: 2 hours plus a 20 minute interval after 1 hour
