Promise and Promiscuity

A new musical by Jane Austen and Penny Ashton


Belltable | Thur, Nov 9th | 8pm | €16/€14

Flushed by four years’ success from Edinburgh to Toronto to Auckland, comes New Zealander Penny Ashton’s collaboration with Jane Austen (deceased). Join Elspeth as she battles 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 (freakishly talented) woman show, Penny tackles all of Austen’s characters with song, dance and appalling cross-stitching. 2017 also marks the 200th anniversary of the brilliant Jane Austen.

In this year, the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s death, Belltable is delighted to bring you the 5th great niece of Austen’s very own Limerick born flirtation, Thomas Langlois Lefroy, in her award winning one woman show.
