The year is 1815, and Miss Austen has just returned from a visit to the Prince Regent’s London residence. The honor of this invitation prompts her to reminisce about the events that led the daughter of a country clergyman to a position of such notoriety. She shares her thoughts and feelings about her novels and how their publication changed her life forever.

Playwright and actress Laura Rocklyn portrays Jane Austen, with discussion and Q&A about Regency deportment and etiquette. Boston-based actor, writer, and first-person historical interpreter Laura Rocklyn writes and performs one-woman historic character portrayals for educational groups throughout the east coast. Generously sponsored by Cheever Tavern.
