Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice
Adapted by Christopher Baker
Produced by special arrangement with Broadway Play Publishing Inc.
Directed by Katherine Turner
Produced by Darlene Thomas
“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.”
The brilliant opening sentence of Jane Austen’s novel, captures the spirit of this story – clever, witty and bright while focusing the reader/audience on the realities of the day, be it social class, the role of women, the need for marriage and the perils of being alone. Lydia Bennet’s reckless behaviour is as serious today as it was in 1800.
Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice certainly has its romantic moments but there is such sharp wit, good humour, social commentary that even a modern audience delights in the final moments as the couples are engaged to a true life partner – Jane and Mr. Bingley, Elizabeth and Darcy.
