Devonshire Park Theatre
Tuesday 13 - Saturday 17 November 2012
A brand new Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds production, Mansfield Park promises to be an elegant and spellbinding re-telling of Jane Austen’s captivating novel.
Unceremoniously uprooted from her humble family home, intelligent young Fanny Price is dropped into the bustling, aristocratic household of her uncle, Sir Thomas Bertram, where she finds herself buffeted from one crisis to the next in the company of her cousins and their well-to-do friends. Yet throughout this turmoil one thing remains a constant – her love for the generous, worthy and steadfast Edmund Bertram.
But will this love be her salvation? Or will she be forced to marry the charismatic Henry Crawford for connections and wealth alone?
Can Fanny triumph over her adoptive family’s demands and follow her heart to acquire the husband and life she so desires and deserves?
Written by Tim Luscombe, whose other acclaimed Austen adaptations include Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, and directed by Colin Blumenau, Mansfield Park is a must-see for lovers of Jane Austen, and indeed all classic drama, from the country’s last remaining Regency Theatre.
