Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of)
By Isobel McArthur
after Jane Austen
THE FIVE STAR COMEDY SENSATION DIRECT FROM THE WEST END
Direct from its triumph in the West End where it won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Comedy, Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of) is a unique and audacious retelling of Jane Austen’s most iconic love story.
Men, money and microphones will be fought over in this irreverent but affectionate adaptation, where the stakes couldn’t be higher when it comes to romance. This “smart, laugh-out-loud funny” (Daily Telegraph) show features a string of pop classics including Young Hearts Run Free, Will You Love Me Tomorrow and You’re So Vain. It’s the 1800s. It’s party time. Let the ruthless matchmaking begin.
Read a fascinating insight into playwright Isobel McArthur’s creative process.
