Synopsis


'If you can't find a husband in Bath, you won't find one anywhere.'


Jeff James (La Musica at Young Vic) and James Yeatman's bold and brilliant adaptation, first seen at the Royal Exchange Theatre in 2017, brings all the sharp observation and quick wit of Jane Austen's novel to the stage, without a bonnet in sight.


When Captain Wentworth proposed to Anne Elliot eight years ago, he was penniless and had only love and ambition to offer.


Persuaded out of accepting his proposal by her family, Anne's never quite got over her first love.


But now Wentworth is back.


Rich, successful and single, the handsome Captain has been transformed into a serious catch.


When circumstances bring the two face to face again, Anne's forced to confront the past.


As old wounds reopen, will Wentworth forgive Anne for rejecting him, and will Anne finally learn to trust her desires?


Austen's romantic comedy is riotously reinvented for the twenty-first century with an explosive foam party and a soundtrack of Frank Ocean, Dua Lipa and Cardi B.
