The Department of Theatre and Dance will commemorate the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen's death in 2017 with the world premiere production of Northanger Abbey adapted by award-winning playwright Jon Jory. Catherine Moreland would rather read her much-loved Gothic mysteries than attend a cotillion. But a trip to the fashionable city of Bath places Catherine into society's inner circle. There she learns that relationships off the page are just as full of twists and turns as those in her novels. In this fresh and fast-paced adaptation of Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey, an unconventional herione comes of age with the help of her wit and her heart.
