Pride and Prejudice

"Jory, the former longtime producing director at Actors Theatre of Louisville and founder of its famed Humana Festival of New American Plays, has crafted an exceptionally clear, funny and moving version."San Francisco Chronicle

In this fast-paced, costumed, stage reading, all of the wit and romance of Jane Austen's classic 1813 novel come delightfully to life. Finding a husband is hardly Elizabeth Bennet's most urgent priority. But with four sisters, an overzealous match-making mother, and a string of unsuitable suitors, it's difficult to escape the subject. When the independent-minded Elizabeth meets the handsome but enigmatic Mr. Darcy, she is determined not to let her feelings triumph over her own good sense — but the truth turns out to be slipperier than it seems. In a society where subtle snubs and deceit proliferate, is it possible for Elizabeth and Darcy to look beyond his pride and her prejudice, and to make the best match of all?

Generously sponsored by Steve Bader, and Shawn P. Leary and Michael J. Considine.

Tickets are $25/Adult and $10/Students.
