“Monetizing Emma”

Last night, Google yielded information about another play loosely based on Emma. This one deals with the alarmingly dystopic concept of investing not in conventional securities, but in…teenagers?

Anyway, the eponymous heroine is apparently a huge Austen fan:

“Emma Dorfman’s one of the chosen elite. A shy 15-year-old who most days shuttles between bullies at school, a pushy mom and a fantasy life inspired by Jane Austen, she’s not exactly sure she wants to be “monetized.” But Thackeray Walsh has special plans for her and Emma may be forced to trade her split reality for something doubly scary…and far more adult.”
