Cheer from Chawton:
A Jane Austen Family Theatrical

with seasonal refreshments

Saturday, December 12, 2:00 p.m.
$20 per person

Jane Austen never traveled more than 200 miles from the town of her birth. She never married, nor left her family. Her novels were not published under her name while she lived. Yet they testify to a person of great wit, insight, and depth. Using original text woven with excerpts from Austen's novels, letters, and juvenilia, together with suitable speech, period movement, costume, and music, Cheer from Chawton reveals the humor, affection, character, and depth of a dependent "old maid" who write, with little fame or remuneration, some of the greatest novels in the English language.

The setting is Chawton Great House, the home of Austen's brother, where the family have gathered for a "theatrical," like the one in Mansfield Park, and instead urge Jane to share her pointed observations on them, their friends, suitors, and society, as well as her own hilarious early efforts as an author.

A member of Screen Actors Guild, Actors' Equity Association and the Dramatists Guild, Karen Eterovich has won international acclaim with her play Love Arm'd: Aphra Behn and Her Pen, which she has performed in over thirty states across American and throughout Europe. She is the writer/performer of Cheer From Chawton and is recognized as an authority on acting in Restoration literature.
