Pride and Prejudice (sort of) description

Pride and Prejudice – It’s Jane Austen, but not as we know it!

Everybody’s heard of Pride and Prejudice, the classic romance by Jane Austen. We predict everyone will soon know about Pride and Prejudice (sort of), a fresh new take on the well-loved story that has been on and off the stage and silver screen for decades, as well as produced for TV and radio numerous times. Welcome to Isobel McArthur’s very clever retelling of Austen’s best-loved work.

What's the plot of Pride and Prejudice?

What’s the story? You’ll recognise it... sort of! The Bennet family includes a total of five unmarried daughters. The parents are determined to marry their daughters off to rich, respectable men. But the task proves more of a challenge than they’d expected. The family’s servants are the stars of the show as they take the mickey, dress up and sing about the Bennet girls’ complicated love lives, all set against a backdrop of early 1800s courtship.

The play recounts every ball, elopement and witty exchange uttered by Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy, a delight in itself and a good enough reason all on its own for buying tickets for this exceptionally funny version of the original 1813 novel. And the whole experience is made even better thanks to modern comedy, live music, and thrilling props. Are you ready for some truly ruthless, wickedly witty matchmaking?

Who is Pride and Prejudice for?

Pride and Prejudice is perfect for anyone old enough to understand the humour.

Fantastically funny !

The most fun i've had at a theatre for years! This play deserves all the praise that it gets! I've never read the book, although I will now after seeing this. The way the story is portrayed and acted out with so much wit and humour is a pure delight to watch. The song choices and musical accompaniments are masterfully selected and every single cast member puts their body and soul into the performance. It's a shame that it is only running for a short time, as I would happily go again and again to see it! Well done to all involved.

Under item 2 above - unfortunately not given the choice of 'idiots' My title would be one of the following or perhaps all! 'The Rape of English Prose' or 'The Rape of Jane Austen' or 'Any likeness to P and P is purely coincidental' or 'SORRY BUT WE NEED T

In 3 words -DO NOT GO. Donate your money to the campagne - 'Ban Filth in our Theatres' I Feel sorry for the actors in this 'play'(abomination). They must be so embarassed to have lent their talents. If any of them have any sense they should extricate themselves from this production - using the word production loosely. Hope the producers are ashamed. I hope the director is never let lose on a stage again. The danger of Covid is outweighed by the abuse of the English Language. I go to the theatre as often as I can and in quite a number of countries, never ever, ever have I walked out during the show. I did not return to see the 2nd act - fortunately, I guess, I sat in the middle of the front row of the dress circle with many items to carry - umbrella, hat, gloves, bag etc. I also have walking difficulties; otherwise I would have walked out during the first act!! I am not a prude -by any measure and am quite ok with swearing where it forms a part of the context; however, to hear ladies saying 'fuck off' etc many times and unnecessarily was beyond belief. What a waste not only of money but of my time. By far, the best part of the show was the curved staircase.

Amazing show

Absolutely loved the show. Superb character acting from every one of the cast.Each character they played was very clever, you could believe they were totally different! Also very talented musicians. The night we went the 2nd understudy played Liz, with no rehearsal to save the show from closing with the lead character & understudy both contracting Covid - superb effort! It was almost like a Pantomime, BUT BETTER !!!

Entertaining from start to finish.

What a brilliant show. So slick, clever, INCREDIBLY FUNNY and so much talent. The cast of five women (something of a novelty on the West End) are all very talented not only acting, singing and dancing but playing multiple instruments as well as characters all with total ease and professional slickness. Written and co-directed by a member of the cast, it was a thoroughly enjoyable evening with a few heartfelt and tender moments added for good measure. There is some strong language so may not be for everyone but I will be telling everyone I know about it and hope to come back to see it again.

SO HILARIOUS. It takes a bit of concentration to follow for non-native English speakers, so I was translating a bit for my friend, but regardless it was incredibly entertaining. The performers are so talented. Do not miss.

Easy booking.(we only booked the day before). Efficient service. The show was totally unexpected in it's presentation but a joy to watch.It was extremely well done , scenery changes were very quick and added to the overall enjoyment. With such a small cast their energy throughout the play was amazing. All were extremely talented, in both acting and music. It was very amusing and uplifting.

Wonderful and witty

A hilariously funny and incredibly witty production that does not disappoint. Talent absolutely oozes from the cast who are supported by an incredible script and throwback soundtrack. Pride and prejudice (sort of) brings the classic alive and into blinding technicolour. It’s a sure fire way to fall back in love with Austen and can be appreciated by all.

Bewitched me, body and soul.

Absolutely hilarious ! The script includes all the characters and events of the book. It’s so clever and witty, putting an original spin on the Jane Austin classic Thanks to quick costume changes, the five actresses are able to play all the story’s main roles. All five are multi talented. Great performances all round. I attended with my partner, and we both know the story well. I think this obviously helped our enjoyment, but I think the show would still be fun without any knowledge of the book I wouldn’t normally write reviews, am not a regular theatre goer, but this was so enjoyable i felt I should recommend to others most ardently

Fabulous Pride & Prejudice (Sort Of) Cast Images

Pride and Prejudice (sort of) Isobel McArthur's 'unique and audacious' retelling of Jane Austen's classic love story is currently in previews at the Criterion, having wowed the critics and audiences at Glasgow's Tron Theatre. The fight over men, money and microphones has never been so much fun than this irreverent yet truly affectionate adaptation stacked with pop tunes. We think Jane Austen herself would adore this musical – and she'd love these awesome set-up images, too.

Pride and Prejudice (sort of) Update for Pride and Prejudice (sort of) at the Criterion Theatre

Described as ‘audacious’ and ‘unique’, Isobel McArthur’s dazzlingly good play is about to hit the West End. The Olivier and Tony Award-winning producer David Pugh is proud to announce his presentation of the Tron Theatre Glasgow, the Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh, and Blood of the Young’s production, Pride & Prejudice* (*sort of). Jane Austen would, we think, be thrilled! The show opens on 2nd November 2021.
