Casting Announced For PRIDE AND PREJUDICE At Playhouse On Park
Kate Hamill's PRIDE AND PREJUDICE (based on the novel by Jane Austen) runs at Playhouse on Park from February 19 - March 8. The Richard P. Garmany Fund at the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving is the presenting sponsor of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE.
This isn't your grandmother's Austen! Bold, surprising, boisterous, and timely, this Pride and Prejudice for a new era explores the absurdities and thrills of finding your perfect (or imperfect) match in life. The outspoken Lizzy Bennet is determined to never marry, despite mounting pressure from society. But can she resist love, especially when that vaguely handsome, mildly amusing, and impossibly aggravating Mr. Darcy keeps popping up at every turn? Literature's greatest tale of latent love has never felt so theatrical, or so full of life than it does in this effervescent adaptation.
