Written at the height of her literary career, PERSUASION is one of the most compelling love stories ever penned. Anne Elliot has rejected a proposal of marriage from the one man she truly loved, Captain Frederick Wentworth. She was persuaded by her godmother that Captain Wentworth was unworthy, but after a separation of nearly a decade, he returns from sea with both rank and fortune. Anne is nearly an old maid and her once rich family faces bankruptcy. Can Anne win him back? Can he forgive her? Can their lost love be rekindled?
This widely acclaimed stage production features Stage Direction by Nick Sandys (British Director/Actor, Metropolitan Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago) assisted by Kyle Dougan, Musical Direction by Linda Madonia, Choreography by Sara Stewart Schumann and Projected Scenery Design by John Boesche.
