First Impressions: Why All the Austen Haters Are Wrong

Ep 4: Mansfield Park Part 2: Seduced by the Theater

January 7, 2016

In part 2 of the Mansfield Park series, Kristin indulges herself with an entire episode centered around the novel's famous set piece, in which the gang gets up a production of the scandalous play Lovers' Vows. Maggie contributes her theory as to how Mary Crawford's d├ęcolletage might affect the narrative. Kevin (Kristin's husband) guest-stars to provide incisive analysis and agree that Kristin is right.
