An Austen Summer Sensation Awaits!

Here is an Austen event you will not want to miss!  The excellent Chapterhouse Theatre Company returns to Ireland this summer, with a fine production of  'Sense and Sensibility'.  The kind people at Malahide Castle have offered our members a special discount on ticket price - adult entry for €15 instead of €17.  I will be emailing you all about the discount code to use when securing tickets over the phone, in the coming days.

As usual, the production involves an outdoor evening performance of Austen's novels, especially adapted into a live theatre performance,
The audience usually enters into the spirit of the evening, bringing their own seating and beverages, sharing picnics and cosy blankets, if last year was anything to go by.  t is advised that you keep an eye on weather forecasts close to the event.  As one of the actors explained at last year's show; 'If it rains, it rains, and we get wet too!'

The tour begins in Limerick on Sunday 20th July, at King John's Castle, then plays at Wells House and Gardens in County Wexford, on Tuesday 22nd July, and ends in Malahide Castle on Sunday 27th July at 7:30.  You can book on the Chapterhouse website at http://www.chapterhouse.org/show4.html for all shows, except the Malahide performance, for which you have to phone the venue to make a booking. The number there is (01) 8169538. (Don't forget to give the JASI discount code for a reduced ticket price).
Some of us were lucky enough to see this production last year, so we can heartily recommend that you make every effort to come along this year too.
