Dramatized from Jane Austen's novel by HELEN JEROME

"It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife." So Jane Austen sets the backdrop for her famous novel about manners and society in 19th century England, the importance of status and class and the difficulty of finding a suitable match.

Jane Austen created strong characters and their lively, witty dialogue has been brought directly from the pages of the novel into the play by Helen Jerome. The spiky
Elizabeth Bennet, proud Mr Darcy, gentle Jane Bennet and her easily-led suitor
Mr Bingley, wicked Mr Wickham and silly Lydia, clever Mr Bennet and his
frothy-headed wife are all here.
