A New Musical By Jane Austen and Penny Ashton proudly supported by The White Swan

Follow the fortunes of Miss Elspeth Slowtree as she battles literary snobbery, her mother’s nerves and Cousin Horatio, all armed with a superior wit, excellent ukulele skills and generally being quite bright… you know… for a girl. Balls will be attended, cheeks will be pinched and manners will be minded, all with not one ankle in sight.

One Kiwi woman, directly related to Jane Austen’s own flirtation, Thomas Langlois Lefroy, brings Austen’s Regency characters to life with song, dance and appalling cross-stitching.
