"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife"

As the Bennet sisters haplessly search for love in Jane Austen's ultimate romantic comedy, it is Mr Darcy who unwittingly finds his match.
Following sell-out performances at Regent's Park Theatre, producers of the recent smash-hits To Kill a Mockingbird and Lord of the Flies, Pride and Prejudice features the Olivier award-winning Matthew Kelly (Of Mice and Men) and Felicity Montagu (Alan Partridge, Bridget Jones's Diary, The Durrells) as Mr and Mrs Bennet. Celebrating the legacy of Jane Austen as we approach her bicentennial, this is Austen "still dazzling after 200 years" (Observer).

Running Time: 2hrs 30mins (including a 20 minute interval)

The Times


'Deborah Bruce's charming production blows fresh air into Austen's wonderful comedy'
Mail on Sunday


'Discharges a quiverful of Austen's most astringent observations and sketches in the essential contours of the smoulderingly rational central love story with sufficient clarity and grace to put a slightly goofy smile on even the severest spectator's face.'


'Arguably the country's favourite novel...Deborah Bruce's production has such charm and elegance. All in all, a lot to be proud of.'
Evening Standard


'This is a perfect Pride and Prejudice: skittish, comical, easy on the eye and moving.'
