After ten years of rapturous performances, Penny Ashton is packing her bonnet and returning to Toitoi, this time to endear the newly refurbished Assembly Ballroom with another brilliant funny show full of song, dance and appalling cross-stitching.
Follow the fortunes of Miss Elspeth Slowtree as she battles literary snobbery, her mother’s nerves and Cousin Horatio’s digestions, all armed with a superior wit, excellent ukulele skills and generally being quite bright… you know… for a girl. Balls will be attended, crosses will be stitched and manners will be minded, all with not one ankle in sight.
Penny Ashton (Winner of 2018’s World Buskers Festival’s Iron Chicken and Best Theatre at the Adelaide Fringe) is NZ’s own global comedienne having performed over 1000 solo shows all over the world.
She also recently discovered she is related to Jane Austen’s rumoured flirtation, Thomas Langlois Lefroy. She is his 5th Great Niece! (This story is told in Becoming Jane with Anne Hathaway).
