Pride and Prejudice – Outdoor Theatre


Illyria’s production of Jane Austen’s glorious social comedy attracted sell-out audiences for a total of six years. It toured throughout the UK and Europe, attracted nationwide critical acclaim.​

In a whirlwind of balls, dinners and very eligible officers, Lizzy Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy stand alone as the only sane, thoughtful people – and they hate each other! Or do they? Can she see beyond his pride, and can he overcome her prejudice, in order to achieve happiness?​

If your idea of Jane Austen is stuffy costume drama then this sparkling adaptation may make you change your mind. Bring a picnic and have a ball as the irrepressible Illyria sharpen their claws to bring you Jane Austen at her best!
