Outdoor Theatre at Severn Valley Country Park

Outdoor Theatre at Severn Valley Country Park
Severn Valley Country Park, part of Shropshire Councils outdoor recreation service is happy to announce an outdoor theatre production of Jane Austen’s ‘Persuasion’ on Friday 19th June 2015

Hotbuckle are a local theatre company based in Shrewsbury, they regularly tour the country with their productions and we are very happy to be welcoming them to the country park. Hotbuckle adapt classic novels and try to tell tales with humour and emotion, making them accessible to everyone.

The story of Persuasion is a timeless one. Anne Elliot and Frederick Wentworth were once hopelessly in love. Persuaded by her family that he is not of her standing, she ends their engagement and he leaves for the sea.

Then he returns. Now a wealthy captain, Wentworth comes to seek a wife. Treating Anne with cold indifference, she can only watch as he courts another. But will he ever forgive her?

Visitor Centre Manager, Susie Comaish says, ‘We are very excited for Hotbuckle Productions to be visiting us this summer. Their adaptation of ‘Persuasion’ has been receiving 5 star reviews at they have toured the country. We are looking forward to their re-telling of this classic Austen tale.’
