31st July-3rd August 2013, New Wimbledon Studio Theatre, Directed by Val Foskett

Sir Walter Elliot (baronet) demands good matches for his 3 daughters, but Anne's choice of the poor naval officer Frederick Wentworth won't do, and she is persuaded to break off their engagement.  7 years later Sir Walter's extravagance has put the family in debt, so they have to rent out their family estate to Admiral Croft, brother in law to the now-rich Captain Wentworth. Anne and Wentworth meet again, but is it too late for them?

Afflicted by ill-health and agonised by memories of a lost love, Jane Austen writes her final completed novel, and her own story.
