Highbury, England. 1815.

Enter Emma Woodhouse: Jane Austen’s most maddening, endearing heroine. Beautiful, spoiled, vain and irrepressibly witty, Emma attempts to organise the lives of the inhabitants of her sleepy little village and is a bit too accustomed to having her own way, although only her friend Mr Knightley seems to notice.

Pledging never to marry, the mischievous Emma Woodhouse is nevertheless the self-appointed “matchmaker of Highbury.”

This highly theatrical adaptation of one of Jane Austen’s greatest novels captures the most beloved episodes in the novel, and allows the audience to follow along with their favourite characters.
