Don't miss the world
premiere of this exciting new stage adaptation!
Jane Austen's ever-popular
romance chronicles the always delicious, often highly amusing
and sometimes heartbreaking details of a turbulent and true
romance between the witty and sensible Elizabeth Bennett,
a gentlewoman of modest means, and handsome but taciturn and
antisocial Mr. Darcy. After a disastrous first encounter,
Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy find themselves involved in an unlikely
courtship that will challenge each of them to overcome their
chief vices - pride and prejudice. Set in the class-conscious
England of the late 1700s, this enduring favorite is replete
with brilliant observations about not only the customs and
manners of the period, but also the foibles and follies of
humanity in all times.
