To kick off its new line of digital programming, Lifeline Theatre presents Pride and Prejudice, adapted by Lifeline Theatre ensemble member Christina Calvit and directed by Lifeline Theatre ensemble member Dorothy Milne. In the town of Meryton, reputation and marriage can secure - or destroy - a young woman's happiness. Faced with the loss of their land and income, Elizabeth Bennet's mother is desperate to secure husbands for her daughters at any cost. When Lizzy is introduced to Mr. Darcy at a local dance, tempers flare as her independent spirit clashes with his ingrained arrogance. Can the headstrong rivals overcome their pride and prejudice to repair the romantic entanglements which surround them and find lasting love? Join this cast of memorable characters as they explore Jane Austen's beloved comedy of manners in our modern, virtual world!

Pride and Prejudice runs Sept. 10 - Oct. 4 online. Ticket holders will receive a password to view the production for the whole weekend of purchase. The ticket price is Name Your Price (suggested donation of $20) for a single weekend access (Thursday through Sunday). Tickets may be purchased by visiting www.lifelinetheatre.com.
