Pride and Prejudice
January 22 @ 7:30 pm
The Dawson College Professional Theatre Program presents
Pride and Prejudice
January 22nd to February 3rd
Playwright: Helen Jerome, adapted from the novel by Jane Austen
Director: Barbara Kelly
Students: Second Major
A witty and charming theatrical version of one of the most-loved romantic books of all time. When Jane Austen wrote her novel Pride and Prejudice over 200 years ago, could she have imagined that the complicated love story between Elizabeth and Darcy would continue to resonate today? This critique of class and character reveals how self-importance and social rank, as well as the prejudices we hold towards one another, prevent us from listening to our inner truth. Elizabeth defies her over-bearing mother, and refuses to marry without love, but she fails to recognize her own innermost stirrings. While Elizabeth spars with the alluring Darcy, her mother is determined to secure marriage for her daughters at any cost, sister Jane must deal with rejection, the younger girls chase soldiers in town and her father experiences profound exasperation. These family dynamics add to the rich layering of the plot, creating a colourful backdrop of manners and mores in early 19th Century England.
