The Watsons
by Laura Wade
April 24th - 27th 2024
at the 
Brockley Jack Theatre, 410 Brockley Road, SE4 2DH

What happens when the writer loses the plot? Emma Watson is 19 and new in town. She's been cut off by her rich aunt and dumped back in the family home. Emma and her sisters must marry, fast.


If not, they face poverty, spinsterhood, or worse: an

eternity with their boorish brother and his awful wife. Luckily

there are plenty of potential suitors to dance with, from

flirtatious Tom Musgrave to castle-owning Lord Osborne,

who's asawkward as he is rich. So far so familiar.


But there's a problem: Jane Austen didn't finish the story.

Who will write Emma's happy ending now? Based on her

incomplete novel, this sparklingly witty play looks under

the bonnet of Jane Austen and asks: What can characters do when their author abandons them?

Tickets £15 and £13 (concessions) available via the Jack Studio website .
