“You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope…”

Eight years ago, Anne Elliot fell in love with handsome young naval commander, Frederick Wentworth. Faced with opposition on the grounds of his lack of fortune she was persuaded to refuse his proposal. But Anne has never forgotten her first love or forgiven herself for letting him go. Now Wentworth is back. Can Anne overcome his resentment and her own regret? Join us for this new retelling of Jane Austen’s bittersweet tale of abiding passion, redemption and rediscovery.
