Description

This is an adaptation like no other. Drawing on over two-hundred years of romantic pop history is Blood of the Young's unique take on a beloved novel - the highly acclaimed Pride And Prejudice* (*Sort Of).

Six young women have a story to tell. You might have seen them, emptying the chamber pots and sweeping ash from the grate; the overlooked and the undervalued making sure those above stairs find their happy ending. Of course, they've always been running the show - after all 'You can't have a whirlwind romance without clean bedding' – but tonight, the servants are also playing every part.

Men, money and microphones will be fought over in this loving and irreverent all-female adaptation of Jane Austen's unrivalled literary classic. Let the ruthless match-making begin.

Presented in association with Bristol Old Vic, Northern Stage, Oxford Playhouse and Nuffield Southampton Theatres
