A new musical adaptation of one of Jane Austen's most admired novels - the story of a woman who has loved and lost and gets a second chance. Persuasion focuses on the regret and loneliness of the heroine, Anne Elliot, who has rejected a proposal of marriage from the one man she truly loved. Anne had allowed herself to be persuaded by her snobbish family's convictions that Captain Wentworth was unworthy, but after a separation of eight years, the tables have turned. Anne is nearly an old maid and her once rich family is on the verge of bankruptcy, and Captain Wentworth returns from sea with both rank and fortune. Can he forgive her for being persuaded to break off their engagement rather than following her heart? And can their lost love be rekindled? One of the most powerful love stories ever written, it will leave you breathless!
