Northanger Abbey in the garden – Friday 31st July-7.30pm

Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey
Over the past six years Dot Productions has toured classic theatre to open-air venues and theatres across the South East of the UK. Their productions are always performed by a minimal cast, with actors playing two or more characters in one play. Cross gender playing has also been a feature in the past such as a male actor playing Lady Bracknell in ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’. They have been complemented on the use of minimalist sets and always strive to be as imaginative as they can. They do not use a raised stage area. Costumes are always appropriate to the period of the play and examples can be seen on their gallery page – take a look at www.dot-productions.co.uk.
This year, Dot Productions will be performing in the Garden of Sunnyside, Great Eversden, again in aid of The Friends of the Eversden Churches. As in previous years, when Biddy Boyd hosted the productions at Fir Tree House, the open-air venue is uncovered from the English summer and therefore you are advised to bring suitable protection from the elements.
Raincoats or sun cream are a must in our unpredictable climate, but rest assured that the performance will go ahead unless it is unsafe to do so; in the case of thunder & lightning the show may be delayed until it is safe to continue. Tickets are non-refundable unless the show is cancelled.
So here are the details –
Friday 31st July – 7.30pm – the show lasts approximately two hours
Venue. Sunnyside, 7 Church Street, Great Eversden CB23 1HU (at the far end of the gravel track opposite St Mary’s Church). There is plenty of parking on the grass next to the track.
Please feel free to bring seats or blankets, drinks and a picnic.
Tickets in advance £10, or £12 on the door
