Watch Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy fall in love all over again — this time filtered through the world of the internet. Modern voices interject and build on this classic love story in the form of blog posts, chat room discussions, quotes from film adaptations, and even letters from Ms. Austen herself to create a delightfully postmodern view of 19th century England. Written for five actors to play every role, Pride@Prejudice is a hilarious and moving homage to Jane Austen and her novel.

Character Breakdown

3 females and 2 males to play over 30 roles in the play.
Excellent English dialects are needed.
A clear understanding of heightened text and the ability to play many characters is needed.
