The things you need to do as the week un­folds

The Wharf - - News -

If Jane Austen’s original fails on the bodice-rip­ping front, this mu­si­cal look at her world might be for you. The one-woman show, star­ring New Zealand’s Penny Ash­ton takes an im­pro­vised tour of the life of El­speth Slowtree as she bat­tled lit­er­ary snob­bery and her mother’s nerves through del­i­cate song and the ukelele ser­e­nade. Green­wich Theatre, Oct 12-14, 7.30pm, £16, green­wichthe­atre.org.uk
