The BBC Radio 4 dramatisation of Mansfield Park is released on CD in the USA by Blackstone Audiobooks today.
Oscar nominee Felicity Jones joins David Tennant, and Benedict Cumberbatch in the full-cast adaptation of the classic novel by Jane Austen, originally broadcast in 2003. Mansfield Park was produced as a ten-part series for BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour and was re-aired on BBC Radio 4 Extra last year to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the publication of the book.
Seeking a position in society, young Fanny Price goes to live with her rich aunt and uncle. But her life there is not as she might wish. Felicity Jones plays Fanny, while David Tennant is her cousin Tom and Benedict Cumberbatch his brother Edmund.
The cast also includes Tim Pigott-Smith, Susan Lynch, Toby Jones and Julia McKenzie and the adaptation was directed by Sally Avens.
