Emma in Iowa…

A bit late on the uptake, but I recently read about a stage adaptation of Emma performed last week in Cedar Rapids…

On Saturday and May 10, the Ushers Ferry Historical Society of Cedar Rapids’ Parlour Theater Company will perform a theatrical version of the 1815 novel Emma. The show will begin at 7 p.m. both days at the Old Capitol Senate Chamber. Admission is free.

“[Emma] was a great choice because it is a fun story,” said society education coordinator Darrin Crow. “It is a fairly familiar piece of Jane Austen but not quite so well known as, say, Pride and Prejudice.”
