Promise and Promiscuity: A New Musical by Penny Ashton and Jane Austen (deceased).

Flushed by six years of success, from Edinburgh to Toronto to a sell-out Nelson Arts Festival, returns Penny Ashton’s collaboration with Jane Austen (deceased). 

Join Miss Elspeth as she battles literary snobbery, cousin Horatio’s digestions and her mother’s nerves, armed only with a blushing countenance, excellent ukulele skills and being quite bright, you know… for a girl. 

In this hilarious, one-(freakishly talented)-women show, Penny (Radio NZ’s Panel, Olive Copperbottom, Hot Pink Bits) tackles all of Austen’s characters with song, dance and appalling cross-stitching.
