This world premiere adaptation of Jane Austen’s first novel leads us on a journey through friendship, love, and misunderstanding. Young Catherine Morland is obsessed with Gothic romance novels. After warily stepping into the social world of Bath, England, she’s invited to stay at the foreboding Northanger Abbey, where she finds much more than she expected. This young woman’s coming of age story is brought to life with wit, music, and dance, and with a vision of our comic world only Jane Austen could create.

This production will use theatrical fog.
