Pride and Prejudice Tour (2016)
By Jane Austen
In an adaptation by Simon Reade
"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife" As the Bennet sisters haplessly search for love in Jane Austen’s ultimate romantic comedy, it is Mr Darcy who unwittingly finds his match. Following sell-out performances at Regent’s Park Theatre, and featuring Olivier Award-winner Matthew Kelly (Of Mice and Men, Educating Rita, Waiting for Godot) and Felicity Montagu (Alan Partridge, Bridget Jones’s Diary, The Durrells) as Mr and Mrs Bennet, Pride and Prejudice toured the UK from September until February 2017. Celebrating the legacy of Jane Austen in her bicentennial year, this is Austen “still dazzling after 200 years” (Observer).
