BBC Audio presents Mansfield Park, Jane Austen's perceptive study of middle class morals in the 19th century. Jane Austen's unlikely heroine Fanny Price is plucked from her impoverished family and brought up by wealthy relatives at Mansfield Park.

When two outrageous and flirtatious guests arrive at Mansfield Park, Fanny's moral compass is shattered. How will Fanny continue to appear meek and cheerful, whilst being forced to re-examine her entire life? 

Starring Hannah Gordon, Amanda Root and Michael Williams.

Well done

This dramatized version differentiates the characters well, and they don't sound incongruous. The only thing is, I always liked the Fanny/Edmund pairing, and this version had me rooting for Henry! It's just a time period thing - back in the day if you blotted your character you had destroyed your life; today we feel that a person can change their life with the right motivation.

A Delightful Drama

Mansfield Park is my favorite Austen novel, and I've heard two other audiodramas of it, both of which I've loved for different reasons, but this one has a special spark all its own! What a treasure!

I love how the Narrator talks to the characters in this, the breaking of the forth wall is so cute here. I couldn't help smiling at those bits.

Abridged version but an excellent performance

Mansfield Park is a favorite, and while this version is abridged (by half at a guess), the performances and acting are excellent. I own another abridged, read version, but enjoy having this performed (for radio?) one as well.

One of My Favourite’s of Mansfield Park

Very poor ending, cuts out Fanny’s jubilation of getting her man which this story is all about & what ‘we’ are all waiting for. However; apart from that huge hick up, this version is still one of my favourites & well worth a listen.
