Northanger Abbey

By Jane Austen
Adapted by Tim Luscombe
Directed by Joanie Schultz
October 2 – November 10, 2013

Jane Austen’s hauntingly romantic comedy.

Jane Austen has a high time with the literature of her day, as 17-year old Catherine, a voracious reader, makes the Gothic tale she’s reading come all-too-much to life, causing her to misinterpret much that’s happening around her. Remy Bumppo presents the U.S. Premiere of a new adaptation, complete with charming heroes, sneering villains, love lost and found, and a setting perfect for the Halloween season. There’s debate whether Northanger Abbey was the first Jane Austen novel, but there’s no debate that it’s full of fun and romance in inimitable Austen style.
