Adapted for the stage by Melissa Leilani Larson
Based on the book Persuasion by Jane Austen
Adapted from Jane Austen’s beloved final novel, Persuasion is a bittersweet story of first love and second chances. Anne Elliot, persuaded by duty and title to give up marriage at a young age, now finds herself face to face with the man she once refused. By turns both heartbreaking, hair-raising, and hilarious, this new take on Austen’s quiet masterpiece is refreshingly lively while remaining faithful to the original text.
