Pride and Prejudice comes to Langham Court Theatre

Jane Austen’s classic to be staged from Oct. 1 to 18

Jane Austen’s classic early 19th century novel Pride and Prejudice  hits the stage at Langham Court Theatre from Oct. 1 to 18.

The novel was adapted for the stage by Janet Munsil and is directed by Judy Treloar.

Pride and Prejudice is about love, identity and social structure.

Each character is coupled by pride and prejudice, and over the course of the story, they learn to see the other and themselves with a clearer perspective. Can Elizabeth overcome her pride and Darcy overcome his prejudice?

Munsil, a Victoria resident, has crafted the characters so that this beloved tale, set in Regency England, is more accessible, fresher and sparkling.

Her adaptation of Pride and Prejudice was co-commissioned and produced by Theatre Calgary and the National Arts Centre (Ottawa).

Munsil’s plays include Influence, The Ugly Duchess, Emphysema (a love story) (UK title Smoking with Lulu), Be Still, Circus Fire and that elusive spark. Since 1992, she has been the Artistic Director and Festival Producer of Intrepid Theatre in Victoria, BC, where she produces the Victoria Fringe Theatre, Uno Fest, and an international theatre presentation series, Winterlab.

Tickets are $21 for adults. For show times and more information, please go online langhamtheatre.ca.
