It is a truth universally acknowledged that there have been countless versions of Pride and Prejudice. But this is an Austen adaptation like no other.
Drawing on more than two-hundred years of romantic pop history, Tron Theatre Company and Blood of the Young’s unique take on a beloved novel – Pride and Prejudice* (*Sort Of) – comes to the Playhouse’s Courtyard Theatre from 25-29 February, bringing music and laughter to the Bennet sisters’ drawing room.
This is not just the story of Elizabeth, Jane, Mary, Kitty and Lydia, their myriad romances and their meddling mother though. This is an irreverent reimagining by six young women with their own stories to tell.
Men, money and microphones are fought over in this affectionate all-female adaptation of Jane Austen’s unrivalled literary classic, presented by Leeds Playhouse and The Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh. Written by Isobel McArthur and directed by Paul Brotherston, music, mayhem and raucous ribaldry replace the gentle romantic parlour games of the Regency original.
Let the ruthless matchmaking begin!
