A delightfully unconventional and fun adaptation of Jane Austen's classic comedy


Ever the romantic, Emma Woodhouse prides herself on being the best matchmaker in her town. Goaded by her friend George Knightley, she sets out on a quest to set up the adorable ingénue Harriet with a fitting suitor. But love has its own agenda as it throws curveball after curveball – including a few for Emma herself.


In a new adaptation that's a bit zany and irrepressibly modern, playwright Kate Hamill infuses the language and perspectives of today into Austen's beloved characters. Thanks to her acclaimed adaptations of Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility, Hamill is one of the most-produced playwrights in America.
