Kim Hicks :
Scenes from the novels of Jane Austen
Enchanting one-woman show, based on the works of Jane Austen.
Courtship is Kim Hicks’ longest running one-woman show. In the years since Kim first created the show, in 1981, Jane Austen’s novels have been turned into an array of film and TV spectaculars and her popularity with an ever increasing audience has grown year on year.
What is often lost though, in these adaptations, is the delightfully rich voice of Austen herself as narrator – not so with Courtship.
All the extracts in the show are unabridged, each picked to reflect an aspect of this ongoing theme in Austen’s novels and often chosen to highlight her excellence as a remarkably fine writer of comedy.
Courtship was the first one-woman Jane Austen show and has outlasted those that followed for good reason: Kim’s infectious delight in the exquisite perfection of Austen’s works. The show captivates its audience from start to finish.
Not one drop of humour is missed and each word or phrase, so painstakingly crafted by Miss Austen, is given the clarity and expression it deserves.
Those new to Austen’s work will be delighted and entertained; as will established Austen fans, who will rejoice in the perfect re-creation of her memorable characters and faultless language.
