A must-see show that will make you laugh, lighten up your day and put a smile on your face! - The Edge Review

A thoroughly different take on the literary classic. Kate Hamill brings Lizzy Bennet to life for the 21st century audience. The language is traditional but the approach is hilariously modern.

Written in 1813, Jane Austen's Regency era tale follows Elizabeth Bennet, a dynamic leading lady who learns about the repercussions of hasty judgments. This classic piece filled with comedy displays the manners, education, marriage and money of society in Great Britain in the early 19th century. Kate Hamill's adaptation is a fiery retelling of the classic story with beloved characters from the Bennet family, the Bingley sisters, Mr Collins and of course, Mr Darcy.
