Pride and Prejudice

by Jane Austen |
Adapted by Christopher Baker |
Directed by Hana S. Sharif

In a world of opulent estates and lavish private balls, where women’s entire futures hinge on marriage, Elizabeth Bennet stands apart. With a vibrant wit and a headstrong sense of pride, Elizabeth places her own needs first and refuses to marry for mere convenience. But she meets her match in the unlikely figure of Mr. Darcy. Beginning as a testy battle of words and ideas, their relationship blossoms into a remarkable romance between two passionate intellects who play by their own rules.

Running time: Two hours and 40 minutes. Performed with one intermission.
