As rehearsals start for Pride and Prejudice (2 – 17 Sept), we are delighted to confirm full casting.

Olivier Award-winner Matthew Kelly (Of Mice and Men, Toast, Educating Rita) joins the already announced Felicity Montagu as Mr and Mrs Bennet. Benjamin Dilloway, whose credits include The Silver Tassie (National Theatre), Of Mice and Men (Birmingham Rep) and King Lear (Almeida), will take the coveted role of Mr Darcy, with Tafline Steen as Elizabeth Bennet. Tafline made an impressive stage debut at the Almeida in King Charles III before transferring with the production to the West End and Broadway.  Also announced is Doña Croll as Lady Catherine De Bourgh, whose theatre credits include All My Sons (Birmingham Rep) and Heresy of Love (RSC), as well as playing Vera Corrigan in Doctors and Pearl McHugh in Family Affairs.

Our production of Pride and Prejudice played to sell out audiences in 2013, and it returns for just 19 performances before embarking on a UK tour, visiting Bromley, Norwich, Cambridge, Salford, Woking, Truro, Birmingham, Richmond, Bath, High Wycombe, Canterbury, Newcastle and Cardiff.
