Kate Hamill's lively take on Jane Austen's beloved novel, just in time for the holiday season.
'It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.'
EastLine Theatre in association with the Babylon Citizens Council on the Arts will present Kate Hamill's Pride & Prejudice this December. Adapted from Jane Austen's classic novel, this vibrant romantic comedy begins performances December 4, 2021. A frantic take on the iconic romance between Lizzy Bennet and Mr Darcy, this new adaptation by one of America's most produced playwrights will be making its Long Island premiere.
This production is part of EastLine's Theatre for All free season.
This event is made possible through the support of the Babylon Citizens Council on the Arts, the Huntington Arts Council, and the First Presbyterian Church of Babylon.

EastLine Theatre is a nonprofit theatre company that BroadwayWorld calls 'Long Island's best kept secret'. EastLine aims to create theatre in unlikely spaces while re-examining the canon, exploring modern plays, and bringing original works to the attention of the community.
This past summer, EastLine toured Long Island parks with an acclaimed production of Romeo & Juliet. In recent years, EastLine has produced Prospero (Live), an original musical based on The Tempest; the Long Island premiere of Paula Vogel's Indecent; a newly-commissioned adaptation of Antigone; a sold-out run of Peter Shaffer's Amadeus in a tiny blackbox space; and a production of Treasure Island that BroadwayWorld said was 'bursting at the seams with imagination'.
EastLine Theatre is a proud member of the Huntington Arts Council and the Alliance of Resident Theatres / New York.
