Synopsis:
"Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans." Jane Austen never wrote those words, but she proves them conclusively in Emma, her comic masterpiece. In this lively and faithful adaptation she steps on stage herself to shepherd her delightful characters through the pitfalls and surprises that await them.
