Steel City Shakespeare Center will be performing Emma at Provident Charter School in Troy Hill. Based on the Jane Austen novel, Emma tells the story of a young socialite in England who plays at becoming her town’s matchmaker. Emma starts to run into complications, with cases of mistaken intentions of love and a cast of supporting characters who each love someone else. Emma doesn’t know who loves who, and realizes that she is even unsure of her own feelings until it may be too late to act upon them. This tale connects with problems that we face to this day, chief among them figuring out who we are and what our place is in the world.
Emma will be performed by Steel City Shakespeare Center from Friday, October 4 until Sunday, October 13 at Provident Charter School, located at 1400 Troy Hill Road in the Northside neighborhood of Troy Hill.
Admission is free with a suggested donation of $15. All ages are welcome. For more information, or to reserve your spot, visit the Steel City Shakespeare Center Presents Emma event page.
