Catherine Morland is taken to Bath by her aunt. There she encounters the social whirl denied her at home.
She meets and befriends Isabella Thorpe and her boorish brother John.
She meets the charming but eccentric Henry Tilney and his sister Eleanor. And all the time her head is full of the gothic fantasies of Mrs Radcliffe's Mysteries of Udolpho, scenes from which will keep intruding into the daily life of Bath society.
In the second act, Catherine accepts an invitation to the Tilney's country seat at Northanger Abbey.
Once again, lurid images of Udolpho keep superimposing themselves on the perfectly pleasant house at Northanger.
Until she finally gets her man...This spirited adaptation for a cast of eight (plus umpteen extras if desired) is by the widely experienced theatre director, Tim Luscombe.
It was first seen at York Theatre Royal in May 2004.
