★★★★★ “Smart, silly, laugh-out-loud” Telegraph
Pride and Prejudice is perhaps the greatest novel ever written and one of the most oft-adapted stories across film, TV and stage, but we can guarantee that this latest adaptation to hit the West End is unlike any others you’ve seen.
Expect period costumes worthy of Bridgerton, melodramatic karaoke moments, and tongue in cheek gags galore. Men, money and microphones will be fought over in this irreverent but affectionate all-female adaptation, where the stakes couldn’t be higher when it comes to romance.
Drawing on 50 years of romantic pop hits, such as Carly Simon’s You’re So Vain and Candi Staton’s Young Heart’s Run Free, this comic adaptation of Jane Austen’s iconic love story is now open to rave reviews at the Criterion Theatre.
Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of) tickets are booking until 6 February 2022 at the Criterion Theatre Theatre, London.
