    KearnsManydown Manor was well known to Jane Austen and her family. The Austen sisters were friends of the Bigg sisters, whose brother Harris Bigg-Wither made a proposal of marriage to Jane—the only one she is known to have received. Famously, Jane rescinded her acceptance the next morning. (What an awkward breakfast that must have been!) What went on during the intervening night hours? Members Sarah Rose Kearns and Laura Rocklyn will perform Kearns's new play, which will take us back to what may have been a turning point in English literature.
