"Northanger Abbey" is a theatrical adaptation of Jane Austen's first novel, and the University of Iowa Theater Arts department will be hosting the world premiere this October.

Young Catherine Morland is obsessed with Gothic romance novels. After warily stepping into the social world of Bath, England, she’s invited to stay at the foreboding Northanger Abbey, where she finds much more than she expected. This young woman’s coming of age story is brought to life with wit, music, and dance, and with a vision of our comic world only Jane Austen could create
