Join in the beautiful grounds of Gilbert White’s Garden for this inventive and intelligent outdoor production with a fresh perspective on Jane Austen’s classic romance

When young Fanny Price is sent to live with her wealthy cousins, she quickly grows from a timid child into a clever, witty young woman with a fine moral compass. At Mansfield Park, Fanny meets the frivolous Crawfords. They introduce her to a world of reckless flirtation, unrequited love, and decadence.

As their antics escalate, Fanny is led further astray until her uncle’s departure to visit his plantation in Antigua. Forced to confront the source of her family’s wealth and its true cost, Fanny must ask some difficult questions. Where does she belong? Will she ever find love? And what does it take to be the heroine of your own life?

In collaboration with Two Gents Productions, The Watermill brings this rousing take on Jane Austen’s well-known romance on tour, revealing a different perspective on a classic story.

Please note this performance takes place outside on the lawn of Gilbert White’s House & Gardens.

Please bring your own seating/picnic blankets, picnics are welcome so sit, relax and enjoy the view! We will also have a bar serving soft and alcoholic drinks, and snacks. Parking will be in the Ewell Field, please follow signs on the evening. The performance will take place in all weather (unless deemed unsafe).

Doors open 6pm, performance begins 7pm. Performance lasts around 1h 40mins, including interval.

This is a production by The Watermill Theatre and Two Gents Co-Production. Adapted by Tonderai Munyevu and Arne Pohlmeier from the novel by Jane Austen.
