A highly theatrical adaptation of one of Jane Austen’s greatest novels.

Pledging never to marry, the mischievous Emma Woodhouse is nevertheless the “matchmaker of Highbury.”

Her newest project, Harriet Smith, has already received a proposal, but Emma insists she marry the eligible vicar Mr Elton, while, an older family friend, Mr Knightly, warns her to give up matchmaking.

When Emma discovers Mr Elton is more interested in her, she is forced to fend him off and find another suitor for Harriet. Highbury welcomes two new guests, a mysterious Jane Fairfax and the charming Frank Churchill, and Emma finds herself falling just a little in love with him.
