LAURA WADE'S THE WATSONS TRANSFERS TO THE WEST END

Following sold-out runs at both Chichester Festival Theatre and the Menier Chocolate Factory, Laura Wade's The Watsons transfers to the West End in 2020. The production opens at the Harold Pinter Theatre on 19 May, with previews from 8 May, and runs until 26 September.

Directed by Samuel West, The Watsons played to critical acclaim at Chichester Festival Theatre in 2018, and completes its run at the Menier this Saturday, 16 November.

Nineteen and new in town, Emma Watson's been cut off by her wealthy aunt. She needs to marry, and fast, or be faced with a life of poverty and spinsterhood stuck in her humdrum family home. Luckily, she has plenty of prospective suitors asking to dance, from dashing socialite Tom Musgrave to the stinking rich, socially awkward Lord Osborne. Which partner to pick?

So far, so familiar, but that's when Jane Austen stopped writing. Two hundred years on, her forgotten heroine's happy ending still hangs in the balance. Picking up an unfinished novel, Olivier Award-winner Wade's new comedy pops the bonnet on Jane Austen's world and asks: what happens when a writer loses the plot and fictional characters take control of their tale?

Joining West in the creative team are designer Ben Stones, lighting designer Richard Howell and sound designer Gregory Clarke, with movement by Mike Ashcroft and music by Isobel Waller-Bridge.
