Promise & Promiscuity – Toronto Fringe 2016 Press Release

“Charmingly accomplished Kiwi Penny Ashton mashes up Beethoven, bonnets and big balls…with alacrity!”770f4c45-4313-49c3-aa9b-20efa3480711

Excerpt from press release:

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a woman in possession of a theatre script…must be in want of an audience. Charmingly accomplished Kiwi Penny Ashton mashes up Beethoven, bonnets and big balls…with alacrity! Fresh from three years of huge global success where it has garnered numerous awards, sold-out houses and standing ovations from Edinburgh to Edmonton to Auckland, comes Miss Ashton’s theatrical triumph for its Toronto debut. Follow the fortunes of Miss Elspeth Slowtree as she battles literary snobbery, cousin Horatio’s digestions and her mother’s nerves, armed with a blushing countenance, excellent ukulele skills and being quite bright – you know… for a girl. One Kiwi tackles all of Austen’s characters with song, dance and appalling cross-stitching.
