An Open Air Jane Austen Performance

Open Air Jane Austen Theatre

If you’ll be in Bath in the later half of July this year (and hopefully coming to visit the Jane Austen Centre!), then you might like to know that The Chapterhouse Theatre Company will be returning to Bath’s American Museum & Gardens with a production of Pride and Prejudice on July 20th.

The production will be an outdoor performance, for which picnics on the lawn are fully encouraged! There will be no seating provided however.

Doors open for picnics at 6pm, while the performance starts at 7pm and will end at 9:30pm.

More information and tickets for this open air Jane Austen performance can be found here.

Unfortunately many of our overseas readers who would have liked to have seen it weren’t able to as they can’t receive BBC channels. The good news for those overseas fans is that the BAFTA-nominated series will now air on Starz at 8pm ET/PT on Sunday April 8th.

The series features Matthew MacFadyen as Henry Wilcox, one of the main characters. The same Matthew MacFadyen who played Mr Darcy in the 2005 film adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. We mention this partly because many Austen fans also like the work of E.M. Forster and period dramas as a whole, and partly because in an interview Matthew gave to promote the airing of the series on Starz, he made a disclosure about his role as Mr Darcy: that he wasn’t everyone’s idea of a 2005 Mr Darcy!
