“Delightful! A fun and lively version.”
“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.” That’s just one of Jane Austen’s tongue-in-cheek observations in her classic social satire and beloved romantic novel Pride and Prejudice. While the five very different Bennet sisters navigate their way toward love and marriage, Austen’s tale of rural Georgian society deliciously skewers the hypocrisies and absurdities of the English class system, while the principals dance, play, court, and dream. Aquila Theatre, hailed for its “beautifully spoken, dramatically revealing” productions (The New Yorker), returns to the Festival with a classic sure to please.
