Pride and Prejudice (2019)

Jul 12 - Jul 21

Ruth Caplin Theater

By Kate Hamill
adapted from the novel by Jane Austen

Kate Hamill’s acclaimed and innovative adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice asks the age-old question: “What turns us into greater fools…than the high-stakes game of love?” Hamill’s answer comes in a form that gives us Austen as we’ve never experienced her before. The tale of the outspoken Lizzy Bennett, whose determination to avoid marriage in the face of crushing social pressure is tested by the dashingly handsome, mildly amusing, impossibly aggravating, and remarkably ubiquitous Mr. Darcy. The sweeping tale is told here by a dynamic eight-person cast who double up on roles and double down on laughter, whimsy, and romance, making for a highly entertaining journey for audiences of all ages.
