Tim Luscombe's fast-paced adaptation of a true Jane Austen classic was presented to an appreciative packed house on Wednesday night by the touring Theatre Royal from Bury St Edmunds. But this was no ordinary performance, as friends of the Northcott as well as ardent Austen fans were offered a pre-show tantaliser of meeting the show’s Exeter-based designer Kit Surrey and the Northcott's Wardrobe Manager Beth de Tisi as they revealed the secrets of how the glamour of the 18th century Regency period was recreated for the stage.
