Classic Austen for Blackpool

Theatre review
Theatre review

Jane Austen’s Mansfield Park enjoys a stage incarnation in Blackpool next week in an acclaimed production from the last Regency-era theatre in the country, The Theatre Royal in Bury St Edmunds.

This sharply-drawn adaptation of one of Austen’s most challenging novels premiered to acclaim last year.

Unceremoniously uprooted from her humble family home, intelligent young Fanny Price is dropped into the bustling, aristocratic household of her uncle, Sir Thomas Bertram, where she finds herself buffeted from one crisis to the next in the company of her cousins and their well-to-do friends.

It runs from Tuesday to Saturday.
