Jane Austen At Home – 4PM
Featuring Emerald O’Hanrahan as Jane
Performances at 2pm or 4pm St. Nicolas Church Tickets £10
Jane Austen at Home is a one-woman show, consisting entirely of Jane Austen’s words: it celebrates the variety and wit of her writings, with extracts from her memoirs, letters, juvenilia, poetry and novels.
Our setting for the show is particularly appropriate as Jane would certainly be familiar with St. Nicolas Church when visiting her cousin in Buckingham House in Old Shoreham when she was staying in nearby Worthing.
The show is performed by Emerald O’Hanrahan, an experienced theatrical actress and the current voice of Emma Grundy in Radio 4’s The Archers.
This event has now moved to 2PM.
The show is performed by Beshlie Thorp. Beshlie originally trained as an opera singer at The Royal College of Music, before embarking on a career change to train as an actor at The Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. She has appeared in a number of stage productions at Bristol Old Vic and won the Carmen Silvera Bursary as part of the 2018 Laurence Olivier Bursary awards, presented by the Society of London Theatre.
