'Emma' By Jane Austen Adapted by Doon MacKichan and Martin Millar

by Jane Austen, adapted by Doon MacKichan and Martin Millar
A sparkling new adaptation directed by Mary Keenan.
Published in 1815, Austen’s second novel concerns a headstrong young woman who thinks she has a gift for matchmaking and persuades her governess away from her present suitor towards a local widower, only to find the widower prefers Emma herself ….
Dealing with the perils of youthful overconfidence and misreading romantic signs, this is an unashamedly modern reworking, full of life and vitality, but despite the irreverence the wit of Jane Austen shines through, and it is crystal clear that Millar and MacKichan love the book. This is a lively, daring and provocative adaptation which will give Austen fans a lot to ponder, argue over and enjoy. The Times called it an "Ebullient and mischievous" treatment of a story of snobbery and coming-of-age.
