The most famous love story our country has ever produced, yet the women don’t work, the servants don’t speak, and who cares how filthy rich Mr Darcy is when he is so arrogant and RUDE?
Georgian England was a world where men had property whilst women had smelling salts and piano lessons. Lucky them.
Elizabeth Bennet is witty and clever, has terrible manners and muddy shoes. But with no independence, is her ending actually happy? Or have we been distracted by Colin Firth and frilly shirts?
If you’ve always heard people saying “Austen is so funny” and you never got it – you will now!
In a brand new comic adaptation by stand-up comedian Sara Pascoe with an original score from Emmy the Great and directed by Susannah Tresilian (Posh, Nottingham Playhouse) prepare yourself for a playful, truthful and occasionally disrespectful* take on this brilliant novel.
*Don’t be uptight about it, it’s what she would have done.
