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.

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.
