JANE AUSTEN, DRAMATIZED: Kate Hamill and Devoney Looser in Conversation with Tabrizia Jones
Playwright Kate Hamill, scholar Devoney Looser, and blogger-librarian Tabrizia Jones discuss Jane Austen’s place in the theatrical canon and the many, varied representations of her novels on stage . . . past, present, and future.
Join us for an evening of conversation, rational and play-full, at this one-night-only online benefit event — all proceeds from which will help to fund the workshop of Persuasion, a new play by Sarah Rose Kearns, at The Warwick Institute of Culture.
What makes an adaptation satisfying? What makes it successful as a work of art in its own right? What can theatre-makers’ takes on Austen tell us about the novels themselves? And what do these stage-Austens reveal about their own lives-and-times?
Appearing together for the first time in history, our celebrated guests will tackle these and other interesting questions on Thursday, July 14 at 7:00 PM Eastern US time.
