PRIDE AND PREJUDICE Set for UK Tour After Opening at Salisbury Playhouse, Sept 18

Celebrating 200 years since the nation's favourite novel was published, a highly praised, sparkling and fresh stage adaptation of Pride and Prejudice will open at Salisbury Playhouse on Thursday 18 September prior to a 2 month UK Tour. On sale now.

The show premiered at Theatre Royal, Bury St Edmunds in 2013 and offers a brand new interpretation of one of the nation's favourite love stories. This inventive adaptation sees two actors juggle the full gamut of Austen's well-loved characters; they journey from the Meryton Assembly to the grounds of Pemberley; and take Darcy and Lizzy from instant dislike to something altogether more different, all in just two hours. Every word that is spoken is Austen's.

In this imaginative and loving adaptation by Joannah Tincey, two actors bring to life Austen's words with great skill and agility. Joannah Tincey says: "I wanted to create an adaptation where the characters talk to the audience in the same way that Austen talks to her reader. By addressing the audience directly and allowing the characters to speak for themselves, we are bringing Jane Austen's unique and witty writing style to life in a truly theatrical context."

Sure to please Austen fans as well as those looking for a fresh and surprising new piece of theatre, Pride and Prejudice is a production not to be missed.

Pride and Prejudice is directed by Abigail Anderson with design by Dora Schweitzer, lighting design by Simon Wilkinson and sound design by Mark Melville. It is adapted for the stage by Joannah Tincey and stars Joannah Tincey and Nicholas Underwood. It is produced by Richard Darbourne Ltd, whose recent productions include the 2014 UK Tour of Avenue Q, Barbershopera's The Three Musketeers (UK Tour and South Korea) and All That Fallby Samuel Beckett starring Eileen Atkins and Michael Gambon and directed by Trevor Nunn.
