The Watsons

Adapting an incomplete novel written by Jane Austen, Laura Wade returns to London with her latest play The Watsons. Following a young woman who faces a decision between marriage or poverty, see what happens when contemporary playwrights finish a tale over 100 years old, with modern-day influences.

Jane Austen’s novel follows Emma Watson, a 19 year old woman who is dumped back in her family home after being cut off by her rich aunt. Emma and her sisters must marry, fast. If not, they face poverty, spinsterhood, or worse. With plenty of potential suitors around, it seems to be the case that Emma will marry, however Austen didn’t finish her gripping novel. As the incomplete novel is tied up by Laura Wade, The Watsons explores the ending of Emma’s story and what happens to characters when they are abandoned by their authors.

The Menier Chocolate Factory is often home to productions receiving their London premieres. Audiences can see Jenna Russell star in The Bridges of Madison County, while The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole is currently entertaining audiences at the Ambassadors, after transferring from the Menier to the West End. But, if you want to see a Jane Austen tale explained in full with a contemporary finish by one of Britain’s finest playwrights, you’ll want to see The Watsons.
