About Pride and Prejudice* (*Sort Of)
What is the play Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of) about?
The original story, which has an ironic and witty style, is cleverly adopted by this adaptation, with its three themes (love, class, and reputation) clearly on show. The story is set in rural England and follows Jane, Elizabeth, Mrs Bennet, Bingley, and Mr Darcy as the main characters. Mr Darcy is attracted to Elizabeth because of her lively spirit, as she stands up to him, thinking he is the reason behind two other characters (Bingley and Jane) growing apart. The story is told in the third person to show all of the characters' flaws, from making assumptions to some serious errors in judgement. The story is full of irony right from the start, and it sets forth Elizabeth Bennet's conflict between both social conventions and a lack of self-awareness.
Six actresses play the characters in this hilarious musical play adapted from Jane Austen's love story 'Pride and Prejudice'. Zesty remarks from Jane Austen are brought to a new level with Isobel's hilarious modern twist.
The story revolves around the five unmarried daughters of the Bennet family. Their parents want to marry the daughters to rich and eligible husbands. You may already know the order of events in 'Pride and Prejudice' if you have read the book or watched the movie.
