I love Jane Austen. And of course she is an amazingly talented writer and – as described on the flyer for our production – a creative genius.
However, punctuation was not really her thing. Both during our first read through of the script and when I was trying to learn the lines it caused quite a stumbling block. It took quite a few rereads and lots of scribbles to figure out how to say some of the sentences in a way that made sense!
I don’t have any more to say on this subject now – just a little thought I had while working on the script for “An Evening at Home with the Austens” 🙂
