Whitworth Spring Theatre Production: Pride and Prejudice
March 7, 8, 9, 14 & 15

Pride & PrejudiceFreshman Weston Whitener, '17, ably filled the boots of the estimable Mr. Darcy in Whitworth Theatre's spring production, Pride and Prejudice, based on the classic novel by Jane Austen. The plot centers on Elizabeth Bennet, played by Emily Shick, '14, who must deal with issues related to marriage, manners and prejudice between the classes in 19th-century England.

Since its publication in 1813, this iconic love story has been adapted for film, television and theatre numerous times. Whitworth's production, directed by Assistant Professor of Theatre Brooke Kiener, '99, relied on the 2005 adaptation by Jon Jory and featured student actors from a variety of academic majors.

In addition to the theatre production, Whitworth hosted "Austen, Ardent Love and Adaptation," an afternoon tea at Hardwick Alumni House that featured Kiener and Professor of English Laura Bloxham, '69. The pair led a conversation about courtship and marriage in Austen's novel and explored the challenges of adapting 19th-century literature for a contemporary theatre audience.
