Jane Austen's "Persuasion"

Do you love Jane Austen’s stories?
Have you ever wondered about the process of adapting novels into scripts?


Jennifer Le Blanc adapted Jane Austen’s beloved novel Persuasion for the stage; it was a commission for Cerimon House in 2012, and was performed (in glorious paper costumes, no less!) at Ainsworth House & Gardens in Oregon City with a large cast of theatre notables.

You are cordially invited to enjoy a conversation with Jennifer about her process, then and now. Come hear about the play’s production history, hear a scene or two, and discuss methods of adaptation.

or classical theatre enthusiasts.
