Promise and Promiscuity


'Go, if you love a laugh'

– Dominion Post November 2020

Flushed by eight years of success, from Edinburgh to Edmonton to a sold-out Blenheim performance, returns Miss Ashton’s collaboration with Jane Austen (deceased). Join Elspeth as she battles literary snobbery, cousin Horatio’s digestions and her mother’s nerves, armed only with a blushing countenance, excellent ukulele skills and being quite bright, you know… for a girl.

In this hilarious, one-(freakishly talented)-woman show, Penny tackles all of Austen’s characters with song, dance and appalling cross-stitching.
