Set 200 years after the much-loved author’s death, Jane Austen’s comic masterpiece, ‘Emma’, is coming to the Cambridge Arts Theatre.

“It takes us on a joyful journey of warmth and wit, romantic schemes, and mistaken intentions,” say promoters.

Young, bright and beautiful, Emma Woodhouse has the world at her feet. When the dashing Mr Elton comes to town she decides to perform the role of matchmaker to her new friend Harriet Smith.

“But to Emma’s great surprise, the more she tries to manipulate the destinies of others, the less success she has, until she herself, determined never to wed, is forced to face her own feelings and perhaps even dare to love another…”

The show runs from Tuesday 4 to Saturday 8 July for a range of 2.30pm and 7.45pm performances.

Tickets; £18 to £33 from www.cambridgeartstheatre.com/whats-on/emma
