"As richly layered as a wedding cake"
This is an adaptation like no other. Drawing on over two-hundred years of romantic pop history is Blood of the Young’s unique take on a beloved novel - the hugely acclaimed Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of).
Six young women have a story to tell. You might have seen them, emptying the chamber pots and sweeping ash from the grate; the overlooked and the undervalued making sure those above stairs find their happy ending. Of course, they’ve always been running the show - after all ‘You can’t have a whirlwind romance without clean bedding’ – but tonight, the servants are also playing every part.
Men, money and microphones will be fought over in this loving and irreverent all-female adaptation of Jane Austen’s unrivalled literary classic. Let the ruthless match-making begin.
Bristol Old Vic and Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh present a Tron Theatre Company and Blood of the Young production. With co-producers Birmingham Repertory Theatre, Leeds Playhouse, Northern Stage, Nuffield Southampton Theatres and Oxford Playhouse.
