An embarrassment of riches


Middle-school students in Chicago will put on three Jane Austen plays–over three nights!

CAST Jane Austen Festival, 7:30 p.m. Dec. 12-14. Three Jane Austen pieces will be performed over three evenings: “Pride and Prejudice,” “Emma” and “Northanger Abbey.”

We suspect these plays might be a trifle edited. Just a trifle. Cub Reporter Heather L.’s excellent site, Solitary Elegance, lists an adaptation of NA from a book of short plays designed to be put on in a classroom; perhaps these are something similar. We hope the kids have a lot of fun putting them on!
