Overview

“I could easily forgive his pride, if he had not mortified mine.”

The Bennet family’s peaceful world is upended when a host of eligible bachelors descend upon the neighbourhood. Hearts race, tongues wag, and passions and possibilities swirl all around the Hertfordshire Hills. At the centre of the storm, the meeting of Lizzie Bennet and Mr Darcy sets off one of literature’s most iconic love stories.

Abigail Pickard Price returns to Jermyn Street Theatre with her hilarious, inventive adaptation of Jane Austen’s beloved romantic comedy. Three actors bring a host of Austen’s unforgettable characters to life in the London premiere of Guildford Shakespeare Company’s sparkling production.
