Newcastle Fringe Event – Jane Austen: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Saturday 20 March @ 3:30 pm4:30 pm

Jane Austen depicted on stamps

It is a testament to Jane Austen’s observational sensibilities, wit and capability with the written word that over two centuries after her death, her novels continue to be loved by the masses and brought to the screen. For every beloved interpretation (Colin Firth as Mr Darcy!) or reinterpretation (who doesn’t love Clueless), there is an equally unusual (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies) or occasionally awful adaptation (a Mormon Pride & Prejudice?).

Saturday 20 March 2021 3.30pm – 4.30pm
Adamstown Uniting Church Memorial Hall.
Book tickets online at Sticky Tickets.

Join the Hunter Branch of the Jane Austen Society as they explore three works inspired by Jane Austen and why they are Good, Bad or downright Ugly.

Ashley Poole – Pride & Prejudice
