WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Channelling the voices of fourteen female characters, and using nothing but the words of Austen herself, this bold revisiting highlights the pertinent feministic themes in Austen’s work. Baring the souls of Emma Woodhouse, Lizzy Bennet, Mrs Norris, Miss Bates and many more, the women speak volumes for their sex and standing, constrained by the stringent societal code of their time proving that Austen still resonates within modern society. Jane Austen is reconstructed within her "two inches of ivory".
