The Watsons

Until November 16, 2019

Famously unfinished at the time of her death, Jane Austen's The Watsons has kept fans guessing for over 200 years. A classic of her style, the heroine Emma Watson is intelligent and headstrong as she is cast into polite society to find a husband before spinsterdom claims her. With a queue of potential suitors and a decision to make, she is then suddenly cut off after Chapter 5. Now, Olivier winning playwright Laura Wade (Posh, Home, I'm Darling) takes up the thread of Emma's tale in this fizzing stage adaptation set to make its London debut this autumn. Asking what can characters do after their author abandons them, Wade presents a suitably hilarious ending to Austen's beginning.

Bust those winter blues with this ever-delightful warm-hearted comedy, revived for its first major London run in a decade. Starring Janie Dee and Adrian Edmonson, let yourself be swept back to the roaring twenties where the students of Madame Dubonnet's School For Young Ladies are preparing to launch themselves into the world and discover much longed for romance. Wonderfully jolly and bursting with classic tunes, spirited dance numbers, and lashings of flirtation, you're sure to be seduced!
