Pride and Prejudice (sort of)

PRIDE AND PREJUDICE* (*sort of)
By Isobel McArthur after Jane Austen
Directed by Paul Brotherston

“Love’s irrelevant - we’re talking about marriage.”

An adaptation like no other, drawing on over two-hundred years of romantic pop history this is Blood of the Young’s unique take on a beloved novel - the hugely acclaimed Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of)

Six young women have a story to tell. You might have seen them, emptying the chamber pots and sweeping ash from the grate; the overlooked and the undervalued making sure those above stairs find their happy ending. Of course, they’ve always been running the show - after all ‘You can’t have a whirlwind romance without clean bedding’ – but tonight, the servants are also playing every part.

Men, money and microphones will be fought over in this loving and irreverent all-female adaptation of Jane Austen’s unrivalled literary classic. Let the ruthless match-making begin!
