The power of Persuasion at Stamford Arts Centre

Persuasion at Stamford Arts Centre
Persuasion at Stamford Arts Centre

Beautifully romantic, touchingly funny and often unbearably poignant, Austen’s most personal novel Persuasion is being brought to the stage at Stamford Arts Centre on Saturday (May 23).

Anne Elliot and Frederick Wentworth were once hopelessly in love.

Persuaded by her family that he is not of her standing, she ends their engagement and he leaves for the sea.

Anne soon realises her mistake and spends the next eight years regretting her decision.

The now wealthy Wentworth returns to seek a wife. Treating Anne with cold indifference, she can only watch as he courts another. But will he ever forgive her?
