Pride and Prejudice Casting Announcement 27
May

By Open Air Theatre

PP Email

We are delighted to announce that Felicity Montagu will play Mrs Bennet in Pride and Prejudice. Known to many as Alan Partridge’s long-suffering PA Lynn, Felicity came to prominence as Perpetua in Bridget Jones’s Diary. She has recently appeared as Cousin Prue in The Durrells, and Mrs Mainwaring in Dad’s Army.

Pride and Prejudice originally played to sold-out audiences in 2013, and returns to the Open Air Theatre (2 – 17 Sep) ahead of a UK tour. Launching in Bromley on 21 Sep, the tour will also visit Norwich, Cambridge, Salford, Leicester, Woking, Truro, Birmingham, Richmond, Bath, High Wycombe, Canterbury, Newcastle and Cardiff. Following in the footsteps of To Kill a Mockingbird and Lord of the Flies, this is the third of our productions to tour the UK.
