Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey
Adapted by Diane Tasca
|Leslie Ivy & the Cast of Northanger Abbey|
In her first novel written for publication in 1803 but not published until after her death, Jane Austen satirizes in Northanger Abbey the then-popular Gothic novels which overflow with dark, stormy nights in damp, spooky castles and where murder and romance often go hand-in-hand. Ten years ago, then Founder and Artistic Director Diane Tasca adapted the early venture by the famed author into a play that proved a hit for her Pear Theatre in Mountain View.
