Pride@Prejudice

Drama
by Daniel Kramer

Directed by Gloria Heidenreich - email

Performances: June 1-2-3 and 8-9-10

This is a faithful re-telling of the classic novel with a comic twist - watch Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy fall in love all over again, this time filtered through the world of the internet through blogs and chat rooms. Quotes from films and even the voice of Ms. Austen make this a delightful post-modern view of 19th century England, and a new way to experience the classic novel.
