Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of)
Returning to Bristol Old Vic to mark the end of their trailblazing UK tour, we’re thrilled to welcome back Blood of the Young with their riotous, pop-infused take on a beloved novel – the hugely acclaimed Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of).
Six young women have a story to tell; 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, Royal Lyceum Edinburgh, Tron Theatre Company and Blood of The Young
With partners Birmingham Repertory Theatre, Leeds Playhouse, Northern Stage, Nuffield Southampton Theatres and Oxford Playhouse
