After a rapturous sell-out turn at the Hawke's Bay Arts Festival, Penny Ashton’s bonnet is back in the Bay.
Flushed by seven years of success, from Edinburgh to Edmonton to Adelaide, comes Miss 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 (Radio NZ Panel, Hot Pink Bits, Olive Copperbottom) tackles all of Austen’s characters with song, dance and appalling cross-stitch.
Please note, this show has mild innuendo.
