Pride and Prejudice*


Product Description
Product Details


Unfettered joy from start to finish. --Herald; Isobel McArthur's adaptation of the classic Jane Austen match-making tale is a merry dance: it's a shimmy; a krump, a twerk,with skirts raised high. Featuring a killer karaoke soundtrack encompassing everything from Pulp to Candi Staton to the Divine Comedy and Etta James, McArthur's play is knowing enough to be irreverent, but faithful to the heart of Austen's story. --The Stage; Sharp and funny... A have-your-cake-and-eat-it adaptation in which the gags are plentiful even while the stakes are high. Where Austen's prose dances with delicate irony, McArthur goes for a sweary directness. Using the theatrical equivalent of footnotes, she spells out the financial urgency of the sisters marrying into money, presenting them as forthright, practical and single-minded young women for whom polite conversation is a chore and the social order something to be tolerated not embraced... A transgressive yet surprisingly faithful rendering of the book. --Guardian
