Friendship is certainly the finest balm for the pangs of any sort of … disappointed love
Catherine Morland (Rebecca Banatvala) knows little of the world, but who needs real-life experience when you have novels to guide you? Catherine seizes her chance to escape her claustrophobic family and join the smart set in Bath. Between balls and parties, she meets worldly, sophisticated Isabella Thorpe – Iz (AK Golding), to her friends – and so Cath’s very own adventure begins.
Zoe Cooper returns to the OT following the hit premieres of Jess and Joe Forever and Out of Water. Cooper infuses the plot and spirit of Austen’s original with her unique voice, resulting in a play fizzing with imagination, packed full of humour and brimming with love.
“A small play with a big heart, a romantic comedy that’s genuinely funny and unexpectedly powerful” Evening Standard on Jess and Joe Forever at the OT
“Whatever it is that distinguishes rare writing talent, Zoe Cooper has got it” The Guardian on Out of Water at the OT
