NORTHANGER ABBEY directed by Val Foskett

11th-15th August New Wimbledon Studio Theatre


"Our pleasures in the world are always to be paid for."

Jane Austen's parody on the Gothic novel is brilliantly brought to life in this witty and inventive stage version.


Young and naive Catherine Morland finds her views on life and romance challenged when she is invited to stay at the Tilney's Estate: Northanger Abbey. She is expecting to find a haunted house, straight from the Gothic novels she loves so much.


A misbelief that results in her making some spectacular blunders. Can there be a happy ending for our hapless heroine?
