Austen The Musical
"Vivid imagination was your creative art. Were you truly in love? Or just romantic heart?"
Award-winning playwright and BBC Radio 2 Golden Oldie Nominee, Rob Winlow is delighted to present the full version of his new musical adaptation of the life of Jane Austen.
Austen the Musical explores Jane’s struggle to have her work published in a male dominated environment, her failed romances and her vow to reject a woman’s conventional lifestyle in Georgian England.
The stunning story of Jane Austen’s transition from a country parson’s daughter to one of the most widely read writers in English Literature. Austen The Musical is full of stunning songs with moments of joy, despair and heart-wrenching sadness.
The fresh, new, musical production has played the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Jane Austen Festival, York New Musical Festival, and a small tour - all to sell out crowds. It now heads out nationwide on its 2017/18 UK Tour.
