Title: Classic Alice
Creators: Kate Hackett
About: "It chronicles Alice Rackham's life -- lived according to classic literature." See my review of Season 1 here. Season 2 just wrapped and stories included: Pygmalion, "The Butterfly," Macbeth, "Rip Van Winkle," The Wind in the Willows, and A Christmas Carol. Whew! Range.
Of all the adapted web series I've watched this one has been the most innovative and also--with funding--could be the most sustainable. They are currently campaigning for funding and would so appreciate your support!
Status: Finished Season 2, campaigning for Season 3
Creators: Taryn Cole, Carly Straight, and Rachel Pullen
About: "'In Earnest' is a modern, web series adaptation of Oscar Wilde's famous play, 'The Importance of Being Earnest.'" This is a quite delightful rendition of this story set at an East Coast University. I am amazed how seamlessly Wilde's 120 year old wit can be repeated word-for-word today. Favorite performance is John Laurie as Algernon Moncrieff
Status: Current. New videos air Wednesdays and Saturdays
Creators: Emily Nabney and Olivia Cole
About: "'Elinor and Marianne Take Barton' is an updated online adaptation of Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen, produced, filmed and created by students at the University of Warwick (England)." I'm aware there are a couple S&S adaptations going on currently; this has felt the most life-like to me. It's also delightful to finally watch a web-series based off a British book created and performed by British people :D
Status: Current. New videos air Friday (usually)
Creators: Foot in the Door Theatre
About: "'From Mansfield With Love' is a modern adaptation of Jane Austen’s Mansfield Park." Another British series! The pretense under which we get these videos is, I think, a perfect set up. Though I found neither Frances O'Conner (1999) nor Billie Piper (2007) convincing as Fanny Price, Holly Truslove seems to have struck a balance.
Status: Current. New videos air Wednesday and Sundays
Other series I'm aware of, but haven't checked out yet:
March Family Letters
East and West
Green Gables Fables
The Misselthwaite Archives
Are there others you've been watching? Any of these look particularly interesting to you? Any I should review? :)
