Are you ready for an evening packed filled with harmony, hilarity... and lots of hats?

This spring book lovers and romantics can enjoy a rendition of Jane Austen's beloved Persuasion, the author's last completed novel. 

Audiences will laugh along to This is My Theatre's (TIMT) delightful adaption of this cherished classic, which will see characters brought to life, in this comical, unique and potentially hat-astrophic production. 

They'll follow the tale of Anne Elliott who is persuaded by her family and friends to reject Frederick Wentworth. However, when Elliott's circumstances alter and Wentworth returns eight years later, as a commended naval officer  no less, old sparks are rekindled. Can either be convinced to give love a second chance?

Filled with heartache and hope, the marvellously silly show will follow the same choreographed, character-swapping style of TIMT's critically acclaimed theatrical shows The Importance of Being Earnest, The Three Musketeers and A Comedy of Errors. 

So how can you be a part of this unmissable evening?
