"Calvitís sparkling take on Austenís most famous [novel] offers plenty of treats for the true Jane believers... Elise Kauzlaricís staging slyly captures the Regency-era world of dances and meaningful glances, where one social misstep could doom a middle-class young womanís marital chances forever." –Chicago Tribune
"A sumptuous, well-honed production" –Chicago Reader
"Another perfect-pitch adaptation... top-drawer performances from an immaculately-cast ensemble, and inspired blocking that keeps the intrigues and intricacies flowing" –Chicago Theater Beat
In the town of Meryton, reputation and marriage can secure — or destroy — a young womanís happiness. Faced with the loss of their land and income, Elizabeth Bennetís mother is desperate to secure husbands for her daughters at any cost. When Lizzy is introduced to Mr. Darcy at a local dance, tempers flare as her independent spirit clashes with his ingrained arrogance. Can the headstrong rivals overcome their pride and prejudice to repair the romantic entanglements which surround them and find lasting love? A world of memorable characters comes to life in this sparkling comedy of manners, freshly updated for its first appearance on the Lifeline stage in twenty years.
Based on the 1813 novel by Jane Austen (Emma, Sense and Sensibility), one of the most beloved books in English literature
