AUSTEN CITY LIMITS: Jane Austen's first novel gets the stage treatment by Mountain View's Pear Theatre.

Based on Jane Austen’s first novel completed for publication, Northanger Abbey follows 17-year-old Catherine Morland as she learns that life is seldom as glamorous and intriguing as the lives of the characters in her beloved Gothic novels. This production, adapted for the stage by Pear Theatre founder Diane Tasca, kicks off the company’s 17th season. The production features two casts—a “senior” adult cast and a “junior” cast of aspiring young actors. The play runs through Sep. 23.
