Pride & Prejudice (*Sort of). 7 – 11 February 2023, Belgrade Theatre, Coventry. PREVIEW.

The multi-award-winning Pride & Prejudice* (*sort of) by Isobel McArthur after Jane Austen will play at The Belgrade as part of the 2023 UK tour from Tuesday 7 – Saturday 11 February, with a press performance on Tuesday 7 February.

It’s the 1800s. It’s party time. Let the ruthless matchmaking begin.

This unique and audacious retelling of Jane Austen’s classic love story originally played at Glasgow’s Tron Theatre. Men, money and microphones will be fought over in this irreverent but affectionate adaptation where the stakes couldn’t be higher when it comes to romance. The show features a string of pop classics including Young Hearts Run Free, Will You Love Me Tomorrow and You’re So Vain.

Pride & Prejudice* (*sort of) is directed by Olivier and Evening Standard Theatre Award Winner Isobel McArthur and Simon Harvey. Comedy staging is by Jos Houben, design by Ana Inés Jabares-Pita, lighting by Colin Grenfell, musical supervision by Michael John McCarthy, sound design by Michael John McCarthy and Luke Swaffield for Autograph and choreography by Emily Jane Boyle.

Isobel McArthur’s audacious re-imagining of Jane Austen’s iconic novel has been described as being “completely faithful to the book but also a raucously irreverent romp” (Daily Mail) and “a mischievous, joyous new take on the novel” (Financial Times).

On the official Pride & Prejudice (*sort of) website, they point out that it’s the perfect production to show students how exciting theatre can be and how an iconic novel such as Pride and Prejudice can be re-invented whilst remaining true to the spirit of the original...and be lots and lots of fun!
