* In 1814 Jane Austen featured Elizabeth Inchbald's popular play, "Lovers' Vows" (1798) into the plot of Mansfield Park.  This very popular, but "racy" play was used because it gave Mary Crawford and Edmund Bertram scope for talking of love and marriage as well as provided a pretext for the flirtations of Maria Bertram and Henry Crawford.  The subject matter of "Lovers' Vows" included adultery and kissing which would have been scandalous topics in polite society of that day.  This short adaptation of "Lover's Vows' directed by Dr. Andrea Hearn, allows audience members to sit back and enjoy a readers' theater version of the play featuring actors from Vanderbilt University, Belmont University and JASNA-Middle TN Region.
