Flushed by five years’ sell out success from London to Toronto to Mosgiel, comes Penny Ashton’s collaboration with Jane Austen (deceased). How will Miss Elspeth battle literary snobbery, cousin Horatio’s digestions and her mother’s nerves, armed only with a blushing countenance, excellent ukulele skills and being quite bright, you know…. for a girl? In this hilarious, one-woman show, Penny tackles all of Austen’s characters with song, dance and appalling cross-stitching.
