Imagine being able to step into the mind of one of the world's greatest Authors as she completes her masterpiece... AUSTEN'S PRIDE springs to life as Jane Austen transforms her rough draft into a beloved classic. As the characters of Pride and Prejudice come to life around her, Austen learns to see both the story and herself in a new light.

AUSTEN'S PRIDE previously held a developmental lab in New York City with The 5th Avenue Theatre in 2017; was included in the Finger Lakes Musical Theatre Festival in Rochester, NY in 2016; and presented at La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts in April 2015.

AUSTEN'S PRIDE includes General Management by 321 Theatrical Management, Casting by Wojcik/Seay Casting and Stage Management by Jen Ash.
