Jane Austen, was born in Steventon in 1775, the daughter of a Hampshire clergyman and was the seventh of eight children. The family lived a quiet life though move quite frequently; to Bath, Southampton, Chawton and eventually to Winchester where she died unmarried in 1817, at the age of forty-one.

It is to her elder sister Cassandra that most of her surviving letters are written, and through them we discover the intimate world of the English gentry. They are at times both candid and wickedly indiscreet, detailing the joys and sorrows of her large family, providing us with an insight into the life of one of England's great novelists. In this production Jane is played by Fiona Shaw.

About the Author
Author Jane Austen

Jane Austen (1775–1817) is considered by many scholars to be the first great woman novelist. Born in Steventon, England, she later moved to Bath and began to write for her own and her family’s amusement. Her novels, set in her own English countryside, depict the daily lives of provincial middle-class families with wry observation, a delicate irony, and a good-humored wit.
