Laura Wade triumphs spinning Jane Austen into major theatrical gold
- Variety

Picking up an unfinished novel, Olivier Award-winner Laura Wade’s ‘ingenious and triumphant’ (Evening Standard) new comedy pops the bonnet on Jane Austen’s world. Directed by Samuel West, The Watsons transfers to the West End following sold-out runs at the Menier Chocolate Factory and Chichester Festival Theatre.

What happens when a writer loses the plot and fictional characters take control of their tale?

The Harold Pinter Theatre opened in 1881 as the Royal Comedy Theatre and staged hugely successful shows, such as The Rocky Horror Show’s West End debut. The name changed in 2011 to The Harold Pinter Theatre in honour of Pinter’s work for the Comedy Theatre. The theatre recently produced Pinter at the Pinter, a series of one-act plays in celebration of Pinter himself.
