Actor and writer Karin Fernald presented this theatrical exploration of some of Jane Austen's earliest works. Written while Austen was still in her teens, these amusing and often farcical pieces were never intended to be published – but they certainly entertained her family and friends!

Karin Fernald researched and created a spell-binding picture of a character and a historical period; sometimes with revealing powerpoint images, and sometimes with music.

Karin has appeared at festivals in England and on tour in Japan, Australia, Europe and at the University of Cape Town Summer School. She is a NADFAS (National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies) speaker.
