Regency Week

“I have always maintained the importance of Aunts” – Jane Austen

Darcy’s aunt Lady Catherine de Bourgh, Fanny Price’s Aunt Norris, and that most voluble of Austen aunts, Miss Bates, all appear in this lively talk by actress Angela Barlow, who maintains that no Austen novel is complete without an aunt.  And then there’s Aunt Jane herself …

Angela, who was trained at LAMDA, has appeared with theatre companies all over the British Isles in a huge variety of stage plays – classical, modern and experimental - including a dramatic part created for her by Pride & Prejudice adapter Andrew Davies in his stage play The Short-Sighted Bear.

Angela has also been seen on film (Joseph Andrews and Tess of the D’Urbervilles) and in numerous television dramas. 

She has performed her own one-woman plays about Charlotte Brontë and Olga Chekhova to audiences throughout the UK, and has taken her Jane Austen presentations to America, Australia – and Alton, where last year she gave her talk Jane Austen’s Actors at the 2016 Regency Week.
