Northanger Abbey

Northanger Abbey


Peter Street,


Northanger Abbey features a cast of just two performers and seven hand made puppets. Through our adaptation, we have tried to remain as faithful to the original work as possible and this, combined with the use of puppetry, has made the production a favourite of Austen lovers and sceptics alike!

“I was completely mesmerised by this enchanting production” Joanna Lumley

Northanger Abbey tells the story of the young, naive and unlikely heroine Catherine Morland. We follow her to Bath where she is introduced into Society and the delights of the Gothic novel. It is a heart-warming love story with genuine laugh-out-loud humour and dark, melodramatic Gothic horror!

**** The Times “...Austen must be smiling down.”

***** ThreeWeeks “...brilliant, dynamic and laugh-out-loud.”

Must See! The Stage “...note perfect...brilliantly portrayed.”
