Jane Austen called this brilliant work her own darling child and its vivacious heroine, Elizabeth Bennet, as delightful a creature as ever appeared in print. The romantic clash between the opinionated Elizabeth and her proud beau, Mr. Darcy, is a splendid performance of civilized sparring. And Jane Austens radiant wit sparkles as her characters dance a delicate quadrille of flirtation and intrigue, making this book the most superb comedy of manners of Regency England.

Pride and Prejudice is an romantic novel of manners written by Jane Austen. The novel follows the character development of Elizabeth Bennet , the dynamic protagonist of the book, who learns about the repercussions of hasty judgments and eventually comes to appreciate the difference between superficial goodness and actual goodness. A classic piece filled with comedy, its humour lies in its honest depiction of manners, education, marriage and money during the Regency era in Great Britain. Mr Bennet of Longbourn estate has five daughters, but because his property is entailed it can only be passed from male heir to male heir. Consequently, Mr Bennet's family will be destitute upon his death. Because his wife also lacks an inheritance, it is imperative that at least one of the girls marry well to support the others upon his death, which is a motivation that drives the plot. Jane Austen's opening line--"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife"is a sentence filled with irony and sets the tone for the book.

The BBC's delightful six-part Pride and Prejudice miniseries entered the zeitgeist at roughly the exact moment Colin Firth's Mr Darcy clambered out of a lake wearing a sopping wet white shirt. Unbelievably, that moment and the show itself aired 22 years ago which means the cast have been up to plenty since.
Pride and Prejudice , romantic novel by Jane Austen , published anonymously in three volumes in A classic of English literature , written with incisive wit and superb character delineation, it centres on the turbulent relationship between Elizabeth Bennet, the daughter of a country gentleman, and Fitzwilliam Darcy , a rich aristocratic landowner. Pride and Prejudice is set in rural England in the early 19th century, and it follows the Bennet family , which includes five very different sisters. Bennet is anxious to see all her daughters married, especially as the modest family estate is to be inherited by William Collins when Mr. Bennet dies.
The film depicts five sisters from an English family of landed gentry as they deal with issues of marriage, morality and misconceptions. Screenwriter Deborah Moggach initially attempted to make her script as faithful to the novel as possible, writing from Elizabeth's perspective while preserving much of the original dialogue. Wright, who was directing his first feature film, encouraged greater deviation from the text, including changing the dynamics within the Bennet family. Wright and Moggach set the film in an earlier period and avoided depicting a "perfectly clean Regency world", presenting instead a "muddy hem version" of the time. It was shot entirely on location in England on a week schedule. Wright found casting difficult due to past performances of particular characters.
When she later discovers that he has scuppered the relationship between her sister Jane and his friend Bingley, she is determined to dislike him more than ever. We are delighted that two members of the cast are making a return to Theatre Royal having performed here before.
