Act Your Age! Marianne’s letter

We continue our series of videos of scenes from Jane Austen's novels, featuring students from Guildford School of Acting,

This summer, we teamed up with Guildford School of Acting (GSA) to produce a series of short videos of scenes from Jane Austen’s novels. This was part of our Act Your Age! project, in which characters from Jane Austen’s novels were portrayed by actors of the same age.

The first video showed Willoughby writing to Marianne, whilst a watchful Miss Grey looked over his shoulder. Watch it here

The second shows Marianne’s response to that letter – sent as a very 21st century voice note. Watch it below!

With thanks to Art Fund who generously funded this project, under their Reimagine Grants scheme.
