Directed by Samuel West, The Watsons transfers to the West End following sold-out runs at the Menier Chocolate Factory and Chichester Festival Theatre.
Picking up an unfinished novel, Olivier Award-winner Laura Wade's 'ingenious and triumphant' (Evening Standard) new comedy pops the bonnet on Jane Austen's world.
Nineteen and new in town, Emma Watson has been cut off by her wealthy aunt.
She needs to marry, and fast, or be faced with a life of poverty and spinsterhood stuck in her humdrum family home.
Luckily, she has plenty of prospective suitors asking to dance, from dashing socialite Tom Musgrave to the stinking rich, socially awkward Lord Osborne.
Which partner to pick?
So far, so familiar, but that's when Jane Austen stopped writing.
Two hundred years on, her forgotten heroine's happy ending still hangs in the balance.
