by Kate Hamill
adapted from the novel by Jane Austen
directed by Christopher V. Edwards

A rollicking, witty, and thoroughly entertaining reinvention of the Jane Austen classic

The outspoken Elizabeth Bennet faces mounting pressure from all sides to secure a suitable marriage. But is marriage suitable for a woman of Elizabeth’s intelligence and independence? When she meets the standoffish, tall, vaguely handsome, mildly amusing, and impossibly aristocratic Mr. Darcy, they clash initially, but is there something deeper behind their animosity? Literature’s greatest tale of manners, society and love has never felt so theatrical or spirited than it does in this effervescent adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic romance from acclaimed writer and actress Kate Hamill (Bedlam’s Sense and Sensibility).

Time: 2:00 pm and 7:30 pm
