Director's Notes

The Dolphin Theatre is thrilled to celebrate Jane Austen’s 2017 bicentenary with the New Zealand premiere of one of the author’s earliest and most provocative novels – Lady Susan.
Possessing neither conscience nor morals Lady Susan is the most unscrupulous anti-heroine Austen ever created, and in the words of one of Lady Susan’s young lovers, the eponymous character is “the most accomplished and deceitful coquette in England.” If you thought you knew your Jane Austen – think again!
