February 19th - March 8th, 2020

PRIDE AND PREJUDICE

by Kate Hamill, based on the novel by Jane Austen


Directed by Jason O’Connell



This isn’t your grandmother’s Austen!  Bold, surprising, boisterous, and timely, this Pride and Prejudice for a new era explores the absurdities and thrills of finding your perfect (or imperfect) match in life.  The outspoken Lizzy Bennet is determined to never marry, despite mounting pressure from society. But can she resist love, especially when that vaguely handsome, mildly amusing, and impossibly aggravating Mr. Darcy keeps popping up at every turn?  Literature’s greatest tale of latent love has never felt so theatrical, or so full of life than it does in this effervescent adaptation.


This Pride and Prejudice has comedy at its heart, but regarding the treatment of women, it shows us enough unsettling similarities between the 18th century and now to make us pause thoughtfully between laughs." --TheatreMania

This Pride and Prejudice is unlike any adaption of the Jane Austen classic one has seen before. Rollicking, witty, smart, thoroughly entertaining." --The Berkshire Edge
