“It is particularly incumbent on those who never change their opinion, to be secure of judging properly at first.”

adapted by Simon Reade, based on the novel by Jane Austen
Directed by Jenny Stephens

In a leafy corner of England, in the early years of the nineteenth century, Mrs Bennet hears exciting news. A young bachelor has moved into neighbouring Netherfield Park – and what’s more he’s incredibly wealthy. With five unmarried daughters and no fortune, Mrs Bennet makes it her mission to play matchmaker and secure an engagement.

High society balls, proposals, rebuffs and five young women making their way in a world where social order is governed by marriage, income and class. Can the wilful and determined Elizabeth Bennet ever find her match? Is happiness in marriage always entirely a matter of chance?

Join Bristol Old Vic Theatre School this February as the original rom-com, Pride and Prejudice, is staged in one of Bristol’s newest and most evocative performance spaces, The Mount Without.
