Playing Jane Austen is the original dramatisation of Jane Austen’s work. The collection was first published in 1895 as Duologues and Scenes from the Novels of Jane Austen Arranged and Adapted for Drawing-Room Performance by Victorian feminist and actor Rosina Filippi. Filippi adapted memorable scenes from Austen into one-act plays for performance, and along with stage directions and advice on the correct silks and muslins to wear, her parlour plays evoke the romance of Victorian drawing-room entertainment at its very best.

The plays:

  • Literary Tastes, Northanger Abbey
  • The Settlement Question, Sense and Sensibility
  • The Reading of Jane Fairfax’s Letter, Emma
  • A Strawberry Picnic, Emma
  • The Proposal of Mr Collins, Pride and Prejudice
  • Lady Catherine’s Visit, Pride and Prejudice
