Uxbridge High Drama Presents Pride and Prejudice
Pride and Prejudice
By Jane Austin
Adapted for the Stage by Jon Jory
Selling over 20 million copies, Jane Austin’s, Pride and Prejudice is one of the most famous and beloved novels in English literature. Its popularity has resulted in the demand of audiences for a dramatization of the novel– ours being one of them.
All of the wit and romance of Jane Austen’s classic 1813 novel come to life in this refreshingly fast-paced and engaging new adaptation. Finding a husband is hardly Elizabeth Bennet’s most urgent priority. But with four sisters, an overzealous match-making mother, and a string of unsuitable suitors, it’s difficult to escape the subject. When the independent-minded Elizabeth meets the handsome but enigmatic Mr. Darcy, she is determined not to let her feelings triumph over her own good sense — but the truth turns out to be slipperier than it seems. In a society where subtle snubs and deceit proliferate, is it possible for Elizabeth and Darcy to look beyond his pride and her prejudice, and to make the best match of all?
Filled with brilliant wordplay, laughter, dance and gorgeous costumes, Pride and Prejudice is a delightful theatrical experience that will appeal to all. Come out to support the dedicated students of Uxbridge Secondary School and experience the magic of Jane Austen’s world. Shows are Jan 13th, 14th, 15th, 16th and 17th 2015. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., curtain at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $10.00 and will be available at the door.
