"Wicked" Lady Susan Presentation Delights Austen Fans

Elegantly attired readers ready to begin (L to R): Debbie Carroll, Roger Moore, Caroline Davis and Andrea Hearn

L to R:  Director Andrea Hearn, Debbie Carroll, Caroline Davis and Roger Moore
On Feb. 8, Middle Tennessee JASNA members were treated to a wonderful dramatic reading of an adaptation of Jane Austen's Lady Susan. An early epistolary novel that Jane Austen never submitted for publication, Lady Susan revolves around the schemes of selfish Lady Susan, a widow who tries to trap the best possible husband while she "carries on" with a married man.  Directed by Vanderbilt professor, Andrea Hearn, Lady Susan came alive through the dramatic interpretations of Caroline Davis (Lady Susan), Debbie Carroll, Roger Moore and Dr. Hearn.  Following the performance at Vanderbilt University's Alumni Hall, a group of 15 audience and cast members continued their Lady Susan revelries at "Cabana" restaurant in Hillsboro Village.
