Jenny Wren Productions present

Jane Austen's

EMMA

Adapted by Martin Millar and Doon MacKichan

Jenny Wren Productions delve into the dating scene of the early 19th century in this playful adaptation of Jane Austen's classic novel. Emma constantly tries to pair off her unfortunate friend Harriet Smith with unsuitable men but is convinced that, for herself, the single life is the only way. Matches are made and unmade quicker than you can say "how delightful", but after all the outrageous flirting, declarations of love and heaving of bosoms, will Emma's heart escape unscathed?

As Jane Austen writes, members of her family become her characters; blushing heroines, dashing suitors and dastardly cads and many more, bringing her story of the ultimate matchmaker to mischievous life.

From the company that brought you Twelfth NightRobin Hood and last year's Jungle Book, make a date this summer with Jenny Wren Productions at a beautiful open-air venue near you.

"How very happy a summer must lie before us..."

 

In the open-air – please bring a blanket or chair.

Love Lies Bleeding - a world premiere by Jamila Gavin

Exciting news for 2018!
Jenny Wren Productions have teamed up with award-winning Stroud-based author and playwright Jamila Gavin (whose novel Coram Boy was adapted for the stage and produced to great acclaim at both the National Theatre and Bristol Old Vic) to present Love Lies Bleeding, a world premiere, which we will tour locally, finishing up with a run at the Everyman Theatre June 13-16.

Furthermore, we have recently been successful in our Arts Council England funding bid for this project, so we're very happy Wrens!

Tickets are now on sale for the public performances - and are limited, so don't delay!

This play explores the personal, political, and domestic background to World War II as it affects two young girls just entering adulthood. It dramatises the issues and arguments that raged at the time; and the choices that had to be made where there was a conflict of interest. It is about friendship, betrayal, and divided loyalties.

Love Lies Bleeding begins in 1939 with the declaration of war and the impact that this has on the girls and the people around them. Having recently left school, the two girls, Gwen and Dodo, share a flat in London. As war breaks out, Gwen joins the WRAC, while star-struck Dodo is training to be an actress. Dodo, who soon finds herself entertaining the troops and factory workers, comes from a family of Nazi sympathisers and, as time goes on, finds herself being pulled in opposing directions: where should her loyalties lie? Matters come to a head after Dunkirk when she is forced not only to choose between the two men in her life but also to make up her mind which side she is on.
