Over 200 years after the nation’s favourite novel was first published, Richard Darbourne Ltd are delighted to present the highly praised, sparkling and fresh stage adaptation of Pride and Prejudice.
This production – which premiered at the Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds in 2013 and embarked on a UK wide tour in 2014 – offers a brand new interpretation of one of the nation’s favourite love stories. Two actors juggle the full gamut of Austen’s well-loved characters; they journey from the Meryton Assembly to the grounds of Pemberley; and transport Darcy and Lizzy from instant dislike to something altogether more different, all in just two hours. Every word that is spoken is Austen’s.
In this imaginative and loving adaptation by Joannah Tincey, two actors bring to life Austen’s words with great skill and agility. Joannah Tincey says: “I wanted to create an adaptation where the characters talk to the audience in the same way that Austen talks to her reader. By addressing the audience directly and allowing the characters to speak for themselves, we are bringing Jane Austen’s unique and witty writing style to life in a truly theatrical context.” A must for Austen fans as well as those looking for a fresh and surprising new piece of theatre, this chance to catch the five Bennett sisters and the whole world of Austen brought to life by just two actors is a theatrical treat not to be missed.
“Simply the most entertaining and intellectually stimulating evening I have spent in the theatre this year” The Hexham Courant
