Love Arm’d Productions - Cheer from Chawton: A Jane Austen Family Theatrical
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

 Written and performed by Karen Eterovich 

In the tradition of home theatricals held during her childhood at Steventon rectory, Jane Austen has prepared an entertainment for her family in which her siblings are to take part with her. But her family has played a trick on her: they have left Jane to tackle an unrehearsed solo performance. They provide her with a list of topics quizzing her on her life, writing and the inspiration behind her work. These serve as the springboard for a most enjoyable afternoon including excerpts from Austen's novels, letters and juvenilia. Q&A follows the program.

Some audience members will be asked to participate in limited roles. A female aged anywhere from 16 – 30, and a man in his 50s can come at 1 PM to see if you will be given a role to play!

Performance 2:00 - 3:00 pm, Q/A 3:00-3:30/4:00 pm depending on number of questions.

Doors to the Fielding Room open 15 minutes before the performance.
