Stage adaptation of Jane Austen's classic comedy of manners

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

Her newest project, Harriet Smith, has already received a proposal, but Emma insists she marry the eligible vicar Mr Elton

But when Emma discovers Mr Elton is more interested in her, she is forced to fend him off and find another suitor for Harriet

Then Highbury welcomes two new guests - a mysterious Jane Fairfax and the charming Frank Churchill, whom Emma finds herself falling a little in love with

Emma decides Frank is better suited to Harriet, but when she suggests the match, she's astonished to discover that Harriet has fallen for Mr Knightly

And only now does a horrified Emma suddenly realize she herself has always been in love with Mr Knightley ...
