Jane Austen was 41 when Sense and Sensibility became the first of her works to be published in 1811. She had, however, been writing for most of her life, and it was by no means her only work. Aside from early versions of this, and of Northanger Abbey and Pride and Prejudice, she had, from her early teens, been producing short, and often acerbic narratives – epistolary exchanges, dramas and stories. In these varied contexts she had explored the principles and extremes of the two positions which she embodies in Elinor and Marianne – sense on the one hand and sensibility on the other.

29, 30 Sept & 1 Oct, 7:30pm at Watts Gallery as part of the year-long celebration of G F Watts 200th birthday.
Life is complicated at the Lyceum Theatre in 1890s London. Actor Manager Henry Irving is doing everything he can to keep his theatre up and running and to keep his star actress, the famous Ellen Terry, happy. Tired of the classics, will she be lured by that upstart, Bernard Shaw, to seek new and challenging roles elsewhere? As local history buffs will tell you, Ellen, (barely aged 16) was briefly married to and modelled for Watts. His paintings will be the backdrop for the play.
