Outdoor Theatre: Persuasion by This Is My Theatre

Enjoy Jane Austen’s classic brought to life at Emmetts Garden this summer

  • Booking essential

Tickets for this event can be purchased here:

Anne Elliott is persuaded to reject Frederick Wentworth by her family and friends but when the Elliott's circumstances alter and Wentworth returns 8 years later, as a commended naval officer no less, old sparks are rekindled… But can either be convinced to give love a second chance?

Too many characters and not enough actors will see this much-loved Austen novel brought to life in a comedic and potentially hat-astrophic production. In a similarly choreographed, character-swapping style to our critically acclaimed productions of The Importance of Being Earnest (2018), The Three Musketeers (2020) and A Comedy of Errors (2022), audiences will love this truly unique adaptation!

Doors open at 18.00 for 19.00 start. Please note, this performance runs for approximately 90 minutes.

This is an open-air performance so please bring chairs, blankets and picnics to enjoy whilst watching. This performance will take place regardless of wet weather.
