The romantic clash between the opinionated Elizabeth Bennet and her proud beau Mr Darcy is a splendid display of civilised sparring, and Jane Austen’s radiant wit sparkles as her characters dance a delicate quadrille of flirtation and intrigue. Pride and Prejudice was immediately successful when it was first published in 1813, and has remained one of the most popular works in the English language, loved and admired by generations of readers, and adapted many times for stage, film and television. Jane Austen herself referred to Pride and Prjudice as “her own darling child” and its vivacious heroine, Elizabeth “as delightful a creature as ever appeared in print.” Director Eileen Venables has adapted the novel herself (assisted by Maree Thorpe) and tells us “Fortunately, many actors are keen to take part in Jane Austen’s delightful and witty story of the Bennet sisters and their adventures in the marriage market, and ACT has gathered a large and experienced cast of familiar faces and new talent. As well as the reluctant lovers Elizabeth and Darcy, there are many strong, memorable and humorous characters to be brought to life in this superb comedy of Regency England manners. And once again wardrobe mistress Barbara Malcolm will be producing stunning and colourful costumes to complement the beautiful setting of the Hall.” Pride and Prejudice is performed on 11, 12 and 13 July and on 18, 19 and 20 July 2019 at 7.30pm. Audience members are free to picnic on the lawns at Little Moreton Hall beforehand, and there is a marquee for performances in the event of wet weather. Tickets are £14 (£10 for under 21s), and they can be obtained by phoning the box office on 01260 276165. You can visit the group’s website to find out more about ACT :
