Adapted by Jon Jory from the novel by Jane Austen

In this crisp, dynamic retelling of Austen’s comic masterpiece, matchmaker Emma Woodhouse has taken on a new “project” — her friend Harriet. Determined to find an impressive suitor in spite of Harriet’s lack of social standing, Emma becomes entangled in the romantic lives of her friends and acquaintances. Will she unwittingly find herself the victim of her own best intentions? Or will Emma ultimately journey from foolishness to maturity, learning the greater value of transformation of self over changing others?
