Thursday 24th November 7.30pm
Richard Darbourne Limited, In association with Preston Guildhall presents the
Two Bit Classics production of Pride and Prejudice
21 characters, 2 actors and 1 one of the most romantic stories of all time.
A highly praised and sparkling interpretation of one of the most loved stories of
all time, this is a must for Austen fans and those looking for a fresh and
surprising new piece of theatre.
Over 200 years after the nation’s favourite novel was first published, Two Bit
Classics’ adaptation of Pride and Prejudice is “simply the most entertaining
and intellectually stimulating evening spent in the theatre” (Hexham
Courant). Every word that is spoken is Austen’s. Every moment is pure joy.
This production – which premiered at the Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds –
offers a brand new interpretation of one of literature’s great love stories. Two
actors juggle the full gamut of Austen’s characters and locations; from the
Meryton Assembly to the grounds of Pemberley; from Mrs Bennet’s nerves to Mr
Wickham’s misdeeds. And of course Darcy and Lizzy, who move from instant
dislike to something altogether more affectionate, all in just two hours.
Fun, fast and romantic – this chance to catch the five Bennett sisters and the
whole world of Austen brought to life by just two actors is a treat not to be
