A delightful stage version of Jane Austen's earliest novel, her mock-Gothic Romance.

Catherine Morland is taken by her aunt to Bath, where she encounters the social whirl denied her at home. She befriends Isabella Thorpe and her boorish brother John. She meets the charming but eccentric Henry Tilney and his sister Eleanor. And all the time her head is full of the gothic fantasies of Mrs Radcliffe's Mysteries of Udolpho, scenes from which will keep intruding into the daily life of Bath society.

When Catherine accepts an invitation to the Tilney's country seat at Northanger Abbey, lurid images of Udolpho threaten to overwhelm her. Until, as in all the best Jane Austen, Catherine finally gets her man...

'Full credit to adaptor and director Tim Luscombe for avoiding the more obvious titles and staging an earlier work that transfers more felicitously to the stage'
