PRIDE & PREJUDICE - By Kate Hamill, adapted from the novel by Jane Austen 
Directed by Birgitta Victorson

The treasured and iconic “will they or won’t they” romance between Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy is infused with fresh vitality and hilarity in this madcap new comedic adaptation. Mrs. Bennet is determined to find suitable husbands for her daughters, but can’t quite get fiercely independent Elizabeth on board — at least not when it comes to the impossibly arrogant Mr. Darcy. At once both warmly familiar and surprisingly funny, the Bennet family’s shenanigans have never felt so modern.
