Emma Woodhouse has it all: beauty, wealth, status, wit. She also has a talent for matchmaking, and delights in pairing off the eligible men and women in town, much to the chagrin of her disapproving friend Mr. Knightley. But when Emma decides to find a husband for her protégée Harriet Smith, she sets off a chain of events that could break several hearts…including her own.
Emma, Sweet Tea Shakespeare’s new spin on a beloved classic, is adapted from Jane Austen’s beloved novel by Claire F. Martin. The new production mixes all the favorites of this delightful Regency rom-com with Sweet Tea Shakespeare’s hallmark live music preshow. The production has one foot in classic fare and the other in a contemporary theatre vibe like no others. The show is the final installment of Sweet Tea Shakespeare’s 21-22 plays in Raleigh.
