Northanger Abbey- Jane Austen's Classic Novel - with Puppets!

Following last season's sold out run of Impro Theatre's Jane Austen UnScripted, The Broad Stage presents Box Tale Soup's comical take on Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey for ten performances, beginning December 5, 2014.

Box Tale Soup's version of Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey has been created and adapted entirely by the company. It features a cast of two performers and seven hand-made puppets. Through their adaptation, the company has remained as faithful to the original work as possible, taking the vast majority of the dialogue verbatim from the novel. This, combined with the use of puppetry, has made the production a favorite of Austen lovers.

Northanger Abbey tells the story of the young, naïve and unlikely heroine Catherine Morland. We follow her to Bath where she is introduced into Society and the delights of the Gothic Novel. We see her falling in love with the dashing, witty (if mildly sarcastic) Henry Tilney and we watch with horror as her she allows her overactive imagination get the better of her. It is a heartwarming love story with genuine laugh-out-loud humor and dark, melodramatic gothic horror.
