The WatsonsAdapted from Jane Austen's unfinished novel and "joyously directed" (Evening Standard) by Samuel West, The Watsons comes to the West End's Harold Pinter Theatre from Chichester via a hugely successful run at the Menier Chocolate Factory. "Jane Austen has never been quite as much fun as this before" said The Times review of Laura Wade's pithy comedy. The playwright herself appears to take on a role as halfway through the action a writer called Laura disguised as a maid interrupts the action. A "meta-theatrical free-for-all" (Standard), this "self-referential comedy... keeps you guessing until the last second" (The Times).

 

About Harold Pinter Theatre

The Harold Pinter Theatre's 1881 interior is one of the oldest in London and one of the most charming, in spite of the damage wrought by an ill-considered restoration in 1954. The Renaissance-style auditorium, with its wooden panels, and gold ceiling and wallpaper, still retains many original features, while the unpretentious exterior is the most attractive and unspoilt among London's smaller theatres.
