Adapted for the stage by Kayla Hambek

Based on the novel by Jane Austen

Directed by Calli Kunz

This world-premiere adaptation of Jane Austen’s final novel follows the love story of pragmatic Anne Elliot and passionate Captain Wentworth.  Eight years after their broken engagement, Anne and Wentworth are thrown together again, their situations reversed – he is wealthy, and her family is struggling to pay their debts.  Can such strong feelings survive eight years of separation?  Or can a flirtatious beauty, a charming con man, and haunting memories of the past succeed in tearing the two lovers apart for good?
