Adapted for the stage by Simon Reade.
Based on the novel by Jane Austen.
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife
As the Bennet sisters haplessly search for love in Jane Austen’s ultimate romantic comedy, it is Mr Darcy who unwittingly finds his match.
Celebrating the 200th anniversary of Pride and Prejudice.Tweet #OATpride
"JANE AUSTEN’S MOST BELOVED NOVEL RE-BORN...it clips along smartly from scene to scene...and shows a respect for Austen’s dialogue."
“Such CHARM AND ELEGANCE...Jennifer Kirby makes a professional stage debut as Elizabeth Bennet; her intelligent, laughing demeanour and sparkling eyes make her the perfect foil for David Oakes’s BROODING, DEPTH-SUGGESTING MR DARCY."
“This is A PERFECT PRIDE AND PREJUDICE: skittish, comical, easy on the eye and moving.”
"Elizabeth and Darcy...charmingly played by Jennifer Kirby and David Oakes."
MAIL ON SUNDAY
“Deborah Bruce’s charming outdoor production blows fresh air into Austen’s wonderful comedy”
"Jennifer Kirby...brings to Elizabeth a WINNING MIX OF MISCHIEF AND GRAVITY that reminds me of a young Judi Dench.”
“still DAZZLING after 200 years”
“Jane Asher gives a masterclass as Lady Catherine de Bourgh.”
