Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of) will is to run in London’s West End from October.
Adapted by Isobal McArthur from Jane Austen’s novel, Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of) sees an all female cast tell the classic romantic story, with added karaoke.
The show will run at the Criterion Theatre from 1 October 2021 with casting and ticket info to be announced.
A synopsis of the show teases:
Six young women have a story to tell. You might have seen them, emptying the chamber pots and sweeping ash from the grate; the overlooked and the undervalued making sure those above stairs find their happy ending.
Of course, they’ve always been running the show – after all ‘You can’t have a whirlwind romance without clean bedding’ – but tonight, the servants are also playing every part.
Men, money and microphones will be fought over in this loving and irreverent all-female adaptation of Jane Austen’s unrivalled literary classic. Let the ruthless match-making begin.
Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of) premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2018 and was touring the UK prior to last year’s theatre shutdown.
