Northanger Abbey – auditions

Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey – Adapted for the stage by Tim Luscombe


Monday 4 and Tuesday 5 February 2019
Studio Theatre, Ashley Road, Salisbury

Catherine Morland likes to read. She likes to read Gothic fantasy in the form of Mrs Radcliffe’s book ‘The Mysteries of Udolpho’.

Catherine is taken by her aunt to Bath where she encounters the social whirl denied her at home. She befriends Isabella Thorpe and her brother John, and she meets the charming but eccentric Henry Tilney and his sister Eleanor.

But can Catherine keep her fantasies from intruding into her daily life in Bath society… and beyond?
