Pride and Prejudice

Adapted from the Jane Austen novel for the stage by Jon Jory

Directed by Anjalee Deshpande Hutchinson

There is a reason women still swoon when they hear the name, “Mr. Darcy”.  For two hundred years, English novelist Jane Austen has charmed generation after generation of “independent women” with her most popular novel, Pride and Prejudice. In this new adaptation by Theatre of Louisville Artistic Director Jon Jory, witty intellectual verbal duels between fiercely independent women and arrogant but handsome men encapsulate the short leap one can take from good sense to bad choice with one dangerously captivating glance.  Join Elizabeth Bennet and her four sisters as they dance between a string of suitors in a society where marriage must be strategized, feelings can't be trusted, prejudice is a way of life, and pride is a weapon worn to protect.
