Event Description

Presented by Penash Productions in partnership with Brisbane Powerhouse

‘A delight’ ***** (CBC, Canada)

‘Razor sharp’ ***** (Three Weeks)

With four years of global success from Edinburgh to Edmonton, comes a charmingly accomplished New Zealander – Penny Ashton, in all her theatrical excitement for a Queensland debut.

Follow the fortunes of Miss Elspeth as she battles literary snobbery, cousin Horatio’s digestions and her mother’s nerves, armed with a blushing countenance, excellent ukulele skills and being quite bright – you know… for a girl.

Tackling all of Austen’s characters with song, dance and appalling cross-stitching.

I have the enthusiasm of a Disney Heroine. Just not the waistline. Though the corset does help.
