Tell Me More

It is a truth universally acknowledged that the only thing better than Jane Austen’s most famous novel is its uproarious and hilarious stage adaptation. Pride and Prejudice (sort of).

Pride and Prejudice (sort of)* is a play that follows six young women who have a story to tell, which is the love story of Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy. Naturally, they’ve been running the show from the start — “You can’t have a whirlwind romance without clean bedding.” But now it’s their turn to take centre stage, take the mic and play every part, following the highs and lows of the five Bennet daughters as they find their man in want of a wife.

The Austen adaptation Pride and Prejudice (sort of)* is written by Scottish playwright Isobel McArthur. McArthur has starred in her own play, which features an all-female cast. Pride and Prejudice (sort of) is a joyous romantic comedy rewrite that puts the women of literary classic centre stage, as the servants of the house re-tell Austen’s beloved tale in an exuberant manner .

Pride and Prejudice (sort of) is in London in 2021, following its smash-hit success at the 2018 Edinburgh Festival Fringe in a co-production with the Tron in Glasgow and a regional tour. Expect period costumes worthy of Bridgerton, melodramatic karaoke moments, and tongue in cheek gags galore. An irreverent and affectionate take on the classic love story, Pride and Prejudice (sort of) is a bold, fun, and modern play with songs that’ll have you in stitches. With rave reviews from The Telegraph, The Guardian and The Times, Pride and Prejudice (sort of)* is a must see for any Austen lovers and theatre fans.

What to Watch For

  • There’s plenty of singalong moments weaved into Pride and Prejudice (sort of)* from 30 years of romantic pop history, including some of writer Isobel McArthur’s personal favourites, including “You’re So Vain” by Carly Simon.
  • Each cast member in Pride and Prejudice (sort of)* plays multiple characters, poking gentle fun at Austen’s well-loved characters. During the play, see if you canspot Mr Bennet as played by an armchair!
  • Pride and Prejudice (sort of)* in London is the latest adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. There have been more than 10 film and TV versions of Pride and Prejudice, including Bridget Jones's Diary (2001), Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016), the Bollywood movie Bride and Prejudice (2004), as well as probably its most famous: the 1995 BBC miniseries starring Colin Firth as Mr Darcy.
  • Ana Inés Jabares-Pita's old-meets-new scenic design skillfully blends the white Regency elegance with a modern rainbow array of light bulbs. Some unlikely props feature too, ranging from colourful confetti, to trumpets, and a life-sized horse!
