Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2017 Austens Women  Assembly Roxy (Venue 39) Review Thursday 10th August

HOMEPAGE FRINGE 2017 PAGE PAST REVIEWS 2017 PAST REVIEWS 2016

Austen’s Women is back at The Assembly Roxy for a short run of nine shows at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe.  This show directed by Guy Stevenson and adapted and performed by Rebecca Vaughan was one that I missed last time it was here and, as soon as the general buzz about the show got around, I knew that had been a mistake, so this year’s shows were an opportunity to correct that oversight.

This show is about as simple in set up as stage performance gets – a simple but perfectly themed set, and one person delivering a wonderfully written script.  There are no gimmicks to this show, no distractions to make up for lack of anything anywhere, just the impressive talents of Rebecca Vaughan using nothing more than speech and mannerisms (no make-up, no wigs, no special effects) to bring to life “Austen’s Women” young and old as for an all too brief a moment in time, characters like Emma Woodhouse, Lizzy Bennet, Mrs Norris, Miss Bates come alive on stage. This performance from Rebecca Vaughan is the skill of stage performance acting at its very best and  proving beyond doubt that  all that is ever needed for a great show is a gifted performer telling a great story.

This show was to a capacity audience and the queue to get in was long, so if you want to catch one of these remaining magical performances make sure you book a ticket now (if there are any left) as this show is one of the highlights of this year’s Fringe.
