Illyria Outdoor Theatre - Pride & Prejudice
28th, 29th & 30th June 2017, 7.30pm – Cloister Garth, Inner Close.
It's back! Illyria's production of Jane Austen's glorious social comedy, Pride & Prejudice, attracted sell-out audiences for 4 consecutive years. It toured throughout the UK and Europe, attracted nationwide critical acclaim and at its run at the 2003 Edinburgh Fringe the queue for returns stretched around the block.
In a social whirlwind of balls, dinners and very eligible officers, Lizzie Bennett and Fitzwilliam Darcy stand alone as the only sane people - and they hate each other! Or do they? Can she see beyond his pride, and can he overcome her prejudice, in order to achieve their mutual happiness?
If your idea of Jane Austen is costume-drama, empire-lines and tea-parties, then this sparkling adaptation, based entirely on the original novel, is something to make you change your mind. Bring a picnic and have a ball as the irrepressible Illyria sharpen their claws to bring you Jane Austen at her vibrant, pacy, forthright best!
Recommended for adults and children aged 5+. Running time: 2 hours 20 minutes including 20 minute interval.
Tickets from £14.50 per person available from the Cathedral Box Office.
