The Menier Chocolate Factory presents The Watsons - a thrilling new play from Laura Wade, making its London premier this October following a sell-out season at the Chichester Festival Theatre last year.

When the writer loses the plot, what happens next?

Nineteen year old Emma Watson and new in town having been cut off by her rich aunt and subsequently dumped back in the family home. Along with her sisters, Emma needs to marry, and fast as If not, they face a future of poverty, spinsterhood, or even worse: an eternity with their completely boorish brother and his truly awful wife.

As luck would have it, there are quite a few potential suitors to dance with, ranging from the flirtatious Tom Musgrave to castle-owning Lord Osborne, who seems to be as awkward as he is rich.

There’s a problem however: Jane Austen didn’t actually finish the whole story, so who will actually write Emma’s happy ending now?

The Watsons is based on her incomplete novel, and this sparklingly witty play takes a good look under the bonnet of Jane Austen and asks the question: what exactly can characters do when their author has abandoned them?
