Penny Ashton’s affectionate one-woman musical take on Jane Austen’s novels offers an irreverent parody of impoverished heroines, dashing cads and unsuitable suitors.
Enter Promise & Promiscuity’s heroine, Elspeth Slowtree, who writes pirate tales on the side while coping with her mother’s nerves and the horrors of literary snobbery.
Penny Ashton is New Zealand’s own global comedienne, having performed more than 500 solo shows all over the world. Here she tackles all of Austen’s characters with song, dance and appalling cross-stitching. Even if you have never picked up a Jane Austen novel, you will love this show.
