Pride and Prejudice
About Pride and Prejudice
This holiday season brings the Houston premiere of one of America's most-produced playwrights, the talented Kate Hamill and her raucous adaptation of Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice." In "Pride and Prejudice," eight actors bring Austen's most famous literary classic to life in a rollicking, festive evening of pure theatricality. The classic story is that of the outspoken Elizabeth Bennet, who faces mounting pressure from her status-conscious mother to secure a suitable marriage. But is marriage suitable for a woman of Elizabeth's intelligence and independence? Especially when the irritating, aloof, self-involved, tall, vaguely handsome, mildly amusing, and impossibly aristocratic Mr. Darcy keeps popping up at every turn?
