Watch Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy fall in love all over again: This time filtered through the world of the internet. Modern voices interject and build on this classic love story in the form of blog posts, chat room discussions, quotes from film adaptations, and even letters from Ms. Austen herself to create a delightfully postmodern view of 19th century England. Five actors play nearly two dozen roles in this hilarious and moving homage to Jane Austen’s most beloved novel, Pride and Prejudice.

From the author’s production notes:

Pride@Prejudice is written to be performed by a cast of five. All but one play multiple characters within the story. Each actor also has an identity as a performer within the play. […] Actors play roles from the novel, performers, a broad range of “internet characters,” and—in one case—Austen herself […] The original cast used British accents for their characters, but reverted to their own American accents when not playing a character within the story. Questions, arguments, quizzes, etc., were generally treated as dialogue among the “internet characters” or the performers, though they sometimes took in the audience as well. When speaking the lines drawn from outside sources, an astonishing enthusiasm is often appropriate. The play is a romance, a comedy, and a celebration.

THEATRE THREE is committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion. As such, we encourage performers of all races and ethnicities, gender identities, sexualities, and abilities to attend every audition. PLEASE NOTE: All actors must be fully vaccinated.
