Photos: Pride and Prejudice at Orlando Shakespeare Theater

Jane Austen's literary classic Pride and Prejudice comes to life in Jon Jory's fast-paced, engaging new adaptation. In a society where manners and pedigree mean everything, can independent Elizabeth and handsome Mr. Darcy look beyond their pride and prejudice to find their true and lasting love? This famous romantic comedy, peppered with scintillating wit and vibrant characters, is sure to delight audiences of all ages.

Pride and Prejudice is part of Orlando Shakespeare Theater's Darden Signature Series which runs in repertory with a magical, modern production of Shakespeare's classic A Midsummer Night's Dream, followed by Charlie Bethel's one-man rendition of Beowulf, the Theater for Young Audiences production of Alexander, Who's Not...Going to Move and closing in April 2011 with the Florida premiere of Charm.
