Classic Jane Austen love story becomes comedy sensation in smash-hit stage show

The five star comedy sensation that has taken the West End and the world by storm comes to Northampton this autumn. Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of), the acclaimed new show by Isobel McArthur after Jane Austen, comes to Royal & Derngate from Monday 30 September to Saturday 5 October.

Fresh from its triumph in the West End where it won the Olivier Award for Best Comedy, Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of) is a unique and audacious retelling of Jane Austen’s most iconic love story.

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. This multi-award-winning production features a string of pop classics including Young Hearts Run Free, Will You Love Me Tomorrow and You’re So Vain.

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

Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of) is written and directed by Isobel McArthur, with comedy staging by Jos Houben and choreography by Emily Jane Boyle. The production is designed by Ana Inés Jabares-Pita, with lighting design by Colin Grenfell, and sound design by Michael John McCarthy (also musical supervisor) and Dylan Saberton.

Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of) sweeps onto the Derngate stage from Monday 30 September to Saturday 5 October at 7.30pm, with matinees at 2.30pm on Wednesday and Saturday.
