Austen Staged: Austen's Short Stories Adapted as One-Act Plays.

One is a conversation between Austen and Shakespeare, and one is a scene from a Lovers' Vows practice session in the novel Mansfield Park. McCune's plays were written for performance at the annual Jane Austen Summer Program (JASP) in Chapel Hill/ Carborro North Carolina, where they are a high point of the event. Preface by Inger Brodey.
