Molly Smith Metzler's Cry It Out is described as follows:

Mansfield Park, adpted from the Jane Austen novel by Kate Hamill

When shy but clever Fanny Price is sent away by her impoverished parents, she must adapt to life as the poor relation of her aunt and uncle's wealthy estate. But Fanny soon learns that beneath the glitter of wealth and status, people aren't always what they seem. Playwright Kate Hamill brings her sense of playfulness and theatricality to Austen's classic tale of the clash between love and consequence. 

The discussion will start at noon and last approximately for one hour.
