"HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - You don't have to be a fan of the genre to enjoy this Emma... It is simply a joy to watch this play."  –ChicagoOnstage.com
 
"★★★ - ...Phil Timberlake's sprightly adaptation of Jane Austen's 1815 novel Emma now onstage with Lifeline Theatre under Elise Kauzlaric's nimble direction, it's undeniably fun."  –Chicago Tribune

After a successful experiment in matchmaking, Emma Woodhouse is convinced she can do no wrong. So the high-spirited socialite inserts herself in the love lives of everyone around her, meddling despite their wishes, and leaves a tangle of heartbreak in her wake. To restore happiness to her fractured world, Emma must swallow her pride and learn to value the needs of others over her own desires. Navigate the blunders of the heart in this world premiere adaptation of the 1815 romantic comedy by Jane Austen.

Making his Lifeline playwriting debut, ensemble member Phil Timberlake joins ensemble member Elise Kauzlaric, director of 2012’s Pride and Prejudice and 2016’s Northanger Abbey (Non-Equity Jeff nomination: Best Production–Musical), for a fresh, intimate look at this beloved Austen romp.

A world premiere based on the novel by Jane Austen
Adapted by Phil Timberlake
Directed by Elise Kauzlaric
