Pride and Prejudice – May 10th and 11th


Jane Austen’s classic novel springs brilliantly to life – filled with class, sass, snootiness, vexing and hopeful courtships, as well as the fun and fury of relationships. In this vibrant, powerful new stage adaptation by Felicia Pfluger, Pride and Prejudice gives a comedic plunge into Jane Austen’s masterpiece, Elizabeth Bennet is an independent woman ahead of her time with a quick mind and quicker wit. Yet with her overzealous, matchmaking Mother, her glib father, four animated sisters, and a string of unsuitable suitors, it’s difficult to escape the subject of marriage.

Enter Mr. Darcy, handsome, arrogant, and infuriating. Darcy’s pride and Elizabeth’s prejudice clash, as and sparks fly in the most famous literary courtship in history unfolds before your eyes. Come see the original rom-com in a new adaptation for a new generation, created by Chicago Playwright, Felicia Pfluger!
