Jane Austen's ​classic novel 'Emma' adapted for the stage by Tim Luscombe.

While Emma’s world is one of secrecy, missed cues and failed attempts to influence others, handsome and mischievous Frank Churchill is also hiding a secret. He’s determined to use Emma to further his own romantic scheme. Will Mr Churchill have his way with Emma, or will she foil his plan?
Keeping faithfully to the original, this version honours Austen’s central themes and transports its famous characters to the stage, including the dashing and restrained Mr Knightley, the comically hypochondriac Mr Woodhouse and the sublimely dull Miss Bates.
