Pride and Prejudice

Though written in 1813, Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, remains one of the most widely read and reproduced stories of our age. Iconic characters, clever witticism, and multiple marriage proposals…what’s not to love, right?! But Austen’s story also has much to say about the interplay between money and marriage, social status and ingenuity, and of course, first impressions and self-improvement—topics which still feel incredibly relevant today. The adaptation we have chosen is by Jon Jory, a famed playwright and director in the contemporary theatre. His version moves quickly and fluidly through places and moments, zeroing in on the essence of character and plot points, while still preserving everything audiences love most about Austen’s penultimate love story.
