Book Now Promise & Promiscuity

Wednesday 15 November at 7:30 pm

A new one woman musical.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a woman in possession of a theatre script…must be in want of an audience. Charmingly accomplished Kiwi Penny Ashton mashes up the Regency, bonnets and big balls…with alacrity!

Follow the fortunes of Miss Elspeth Slowtree as she battles literary snobbery, her mother’s nerves and Cousin Horatio’s digestions, all armed with a superior wit, excellent ukulele skills and generally being quite bright… you know… for a girl.  Balls will be attended, crosses will be stitched and manners will be minded, all with not one ankle in sight. As Elizabeth Bennett herself says “Follies and nonsense, whims and inconsistencies do divert me, I own, and I laugh at them whenever I can.”

And so should you.

‘A delight’ ***** (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation).
‘Somewhere Jane is smiling’ **** (Edmonton Sun).
‘Razor sharp turn of phrase’ ****1/2 (Adelaide Advertiser).
