Trinity Rep Announces Record-Setting Production Of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE

Trinity Rep Announces Record-Setting Production Of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE

Trinity Repertory Company's 2018-19 Season opener, Pride and Prejudice, recently ended a successful run, playing to sold out audiences and over 90% capacity. The comedy, which ran October 4 through November 4 was the highest-selling comedy produced by the organization since The Odd Couple in the 2009-10 Season. The production was also notable for playing to higher paid capacity than any show since The Completely Fictional - Utterly True - Final Strange Tale of Edgar Allan Poe in the 2010-11 Season. More than half of the Pride and Prejudice public performances sold out. Adapted from the Jane Austen novel by Kate Hamill, this production was directed by Birgitta Victorson. The cast included resident acting company members Angela Brazil, Janice Duclos, Rebecca Gibel, Rachael Warren, and Joe Wilson, Jr. They were accompanied on stage by guest actors Richard Donelly, Shelley Fort, and Katie Croyle.

Executive Director Tom Parrish commented, "We are thrilled that audiences embraced and enjoyed Kate Hamill's contemporary adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. It turned out to be a hit, exceeding our expectations and marking a fantastic start to the 2018-19 Season."

In addition to the success of Pride and Prejudice, Trinity Rep is also seeing sales for A Christmas Carol outpacing last year's record-breaking production, which became the highest selling production in Trinity Rep's 55-year history. This year's incarnation of the holiday tradition is the 41st consecutive mounting of the Dickens classic and is completely re-invented each season with a new director, cast, and designers.

Subscriptions to the remaining shows of the 2018-19 Season continue to be available and offer the best way for audiences to guarantee access and the lowest prices for the season's hottest shows. Subscriptions are available for as little as $19 per show with savings of up to 33% off single ticket prices.
