Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of)
Book Pride and Prejudice Sort Of tickets for a karaoke-soaked her-story lesson
Pride and Prejudice is perhaps the greatest novel ever written and one of the most oft-adapted stories across film, TV and stage, but we can guarantee that this latest adaptation to hit the West End is unlike any others you’ve seen.
Drawing on 200 years of romantic pop hits, such as Carly Simon’s You’re So Vain and Candi Staton’s Young Heart’s Run Free, this irreverent all-female adaptation of Jane Austen’s beloved novel is ready to rewrite the her-story at the Criterion Theatre.
Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of) is told from the perspective of six servants who are tired of being overlooked and undervalued. They’re ready to meddle in the match-making, salivate at the scandal and revel in the romance – all the while belting their hearts out on the karaoke.
Isobel McArthur’s Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of) first premiered in Glasgow in 2018 by the Blood of the Young theatre company, before embarking on an acclaimed UK-wide tour in 2019. The riotous production is now set to take over the West End, following in the footsteps of the hugely successful improv troupe Austentatious, with an open-ended run at the Criterion Theatre.
Whether you’re an Austen aficionado or virgin, this hilarious, contemporary romp through Regency-era Britain is not to be missed.
Age recommendations for the West End run of Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of) are to be confirmed. The previous tour was recommended for those aged 12 and above.
