Adapted for the stage by Julia Claußen

Directed by Lexi von Hoffmann


Persuasion by Jane Austen


When Anne Elliott fell in love as a young woman, she let herself be persuaded that her chosen, Frederick Wentworth, was a man without any prospects and therefore anything but a suitable match. Her heart broken, she never married. When Wentworth returns a rich man from the Napoleonic Wars years later, Anne, her affection unchanged, has to stand by as several eligible young women set their caps at him. Her situation is further complicated by her vain and extravagant father, the sudden attentions of her father’s estranged heir, and the claims upon her time by her silly sister Mary.

2017 marks the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s death. In honour of one of the greatest English authors, the Hamburg Players present this adaptation of her last completed novel. (Adapted by Julia Claußen, directed by Lexi von Hoffmann)
