Dear Reader

You may note that it was upon the 18th of July, some 200 years ago this very year that I departed this earthly struggle and left only those immortals as Mr Darcy, Miss Bennett and Miss Price for your edification and the enrichment of my estate. You will be astonished, as was I, to note that my new friends at Austentatious have discovered my hidden works and have sought to bring them to the stage. That they ne’er would have seen the light of day cannot be denied but you can see a recreation as this amazing group of troubadours bring them to life before your very eyes. Having travelled from Edinburgh to make you weep with laughter, I urge you - nay I implore you to join us in Thame in October.

Your ever loving friend

Jane Austen (Miss)
