A very young shy and timid Fanny Price is sent by her impoverished family to live with her wealthy Uncle and Aunt at Mansfield Park.


She grows up with her four cousins Tom, Edmund, Maria and Julia and has to face many hardships being treated as an inferior poor relation but finds solace and friendship with the kind and gentle Edmund with whom she eventually falls in love but his attentions are directed to the visiting Mary Crawford whilst her brother Henry looks to disrupt Maria’s engagement to the wealthy Mr Rushworth, just for fun.


Relationships are twisted and manipulated through this tale of character adapted from the novel by Jane Austen.
