About Northanger Abbey

Bold reimagining of Austen's romantic novel

Catherine Morland knows little of the world, but who needs real-life experience when you have novels to guide you? Catherine seizes her chance to escape her claustrophobic family and join the smart set in Bath. Between balls and parties, she meets worldly, sophisticated Isabella Thorpe – Iz, to her friends – and so Cath’s very own real-life adventure begins.

In this fresh take, Zoe Cooper infuses the plot and spirit of Austen’s original novel with her own unique voice, resulting in a play fizzing with imagination, packed full of humour and brimming with love.
