Box Tale Soup’s version of Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey features a cast of just two human 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 favourite of Austen lovers and sceptics alike! A heartwarming love story with genuine laugh-out-loud humour and dark, melodramatic gothic horror!
“I was completely mesmerised by this enchanting production” Joanna Lumley
**** The Times “...Austen must be smiling down.”
***** ThreeWeeks “…brilliant, dynamic and laugh-out-loud.”
Must See! The Stage “…note perfect…brilliantly portrayed.”
