Longtime home for cutting-edge live performances, 4th Wall Theatre Company is thrilled to follow the success of September's 'Jesus Hopped the 'A' Train' with another Houston premiere, 'Pride and Prejudice.'

Kate Hamill is one of the country’s most produced playwrights and formerly penned a smash adaption of “Sense and Sensibility” for Bedlam Theatre in NYC. Her “Pride and Prejudice” maintains much of the same rollicking energy, but with the voice of an author writing in the #metoo era. In the words of the Berkshire Edge, “…beneath ‘Pride and Prejudice’s’ laughs, there’s a core, more delicate sensibility – a wry, keen awareness that regards, with squinted eye, people warts and all. This ‘Pride and Prejudice’ is blissful mirth – a special potion of affectionate, bemused cynicism and realistic optimism about human nature…”
In PRIDE AND PREJUDICE the outspoken Elizabeth Bennet faces mounting pressure from her status-conscious mother to secure a suitable marriage. But is marriage suitable for a woman of Elizabeth’s intelligence and independence? Especially when the irritating, aloof, self-involved… tall, vaguely handsome, mildly amusing, and impossibly aristocratic Mr. Darcy keeps popping up at every turn?!
“The bottom line is, you’re going to have fun at this show,” claims Tim Richey, 4th Wall’s new Managing Director, “and that intersection where a great night out at the theatre meets with work that pushes our audience a bit, that’s where we want to live.” Richey adds, “It’s a perfect piece for you and almost your whole family this holiday season.”
4th Wall’s production features a cast and crew full of Houston favorites, including actors Justin Doran, Philip Hayes, Philip Lehl, Leslie Lenert, Rachael Logue, Courtney Lomelo, Jeff McMorrough, and Amy Mire, alongside director Kim Tobin-Lehl, scenic designer Ryan McGettigan, lighting designer Christina Gianneli, sound designer Michael Mullins, costume designer Paige Wilson, properties designer Tina Montgomery, and choreographer Krissy Richmond
