Promise & Promiscuity
A New Musical by Jane Austen and Penny Ashton
Follow the fortunes of Miss Elspeth Slowtree as she battles literary snobbery, her mother’s nerves and the digestions of Cousin Horatio, all armed with a superior wit, excellent ukulele skills and generally being quite bright… you know… for a girl. Balls will be attended, cheeks will be pinched and manners will be minded, all with not one ankle in sight.
New Zealand star Penny Ashton brings a full cast of Austenesque characters to life with song, dance and appalling cross-stitching in this eagerly awaited UK tour of the hilarious Promise and Promiscuity.
