Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice” is adapted for stage by Simon Reade, and directed by Tim Scott for HTC.
Handsome Mr Darcy meets engaging Elizabeth Bennet and is as much drawn by her charms as he is put off by her family’s lower social standing.
Jane Austen’s much-loved classic love story is brought vividly to life in this new stage adaptation, where dances abound, marriages are sought and made, and pride is finally overcome. Pride and Prejudice, the play, is replete with all the familiar, comical characters of the novel. It boasts period costumes, music and witty dialogue, where the deserving are rewarded, the self-serving are put in their place and love is triumphant.
