Pride and Prejudice
(Not included in your season subscription)
Adapted by Martha Frazier and Shannon Watts
from the novel by Jane Austen
Directed by Alyssa Hendricks
Mrs. Bennett is determined to get her daughters married. Jane, Elizabeth, and Lydia are likely-looking girls in a period when a woman's one possible career is matrimony. To be a wife was success. Anything else was failure. Jane and her Mr. Bingley and Lydia with her Mr. Wickham are quite content with things as they are, but not Elizabeth! She actually refuses to marry Mr. Collins, whom she openly deplores, and also refuses Mr. Darcy, whom she secretly adores. This play is the story of the duel between Elizabeth and her pride, and Darcy and his prejudice. Come see how they resolve the duel!
