It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.
Pride and Prejudice is one of the most beloved novels ever written in the English language. 2003 BBC poll placed Pride and Prejudice in the #2 spot in their list of the “UK’s Best Loved Books,” right behind Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings. A 2008 Australian survey pegged Pride and Prejudice on top of the “101 Best Books Ever Written.” The novel is no less popular in the US, having spawned numerous film and stage adaptations including the 1995 BBC mini-series that was popularized on PBS stations.
Paula K. Parker’s sparkling new stage adaptation of the beloved Jane Austen classic, Pride & Prejudice, pits the lovely but opinionated Lizzy Bennet against the handsome, wealthy, yet brooding and taciturn Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy in a fencing match where reputations, family fortunes, and hearts are at stake.
