Pride & Prejudice Auditions

Synopsis

Pride and Prejudice adapted for the stage by Jane Kendall Closely following Jane Austen’s famous historical novel, the play takes us into the home of Mr and Mrs Bennet and their five unmarried (gasp!) daughters. Elizabeth Bennet is the high spirited and independent daughter in the Bennet clan. Opposite her is Mr Darcy, a most formidable wealthy batchelor. Elizabeth and Darcy are clearly meant for each other, but in Austenian fashion they must at first antagonize each other. By the end of the play, Darcy relinquishes his stiff-necked pride and Elizabeth yields her prejudice against him.

Character ages are flexible and for smaller characters, there are opportunities for doubling and cross-casting gender and age. Yes, we will have some fun with this!
