Austen Under The Stars

Most readers have fallen in love with Jane Austen’s writing – and wit – between the sheets of a well-thumbed novel; but what about rediscovering one of her best-loved stories under the stars? Chapterhouse Theatre Company is currently touring its latest adaptation of Pride & Prejudice by writer Laura Tuner at some of Ireland’s most spectacular country homes, with remaining dates at Markree Castle in Collooney, Co Sligo, on Thursday 20 July at 6.30pm and at Hilton Park in Clones, Co Monaghan, on Sunday 23 July. Theatre goers are advised to bring their own rugs or low-backed seating, with tickets available at €19 for adults, €14 for children or €56 for a family (two adults and two children).
