Isobel McArthur’s audacious re-imagining of Jane Austen’s iconic novel  has been described as being “completely faithful to the book but also a raucously irreverent romp” (Daily Mail) and “a mischievous, joyous new take on the novel” (Financial Times).

It’s the perfect production to show your students how exciting theatre can be and how an iconic novel such as Pride and Prejudice can be re-invented whilst remaining true to the spirit of the original...and be lots and lots of fun!


An education pack for Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of) is  available and explores the approach to adapting an iconic novel for the stage through interviews with directors Isobel McArthur and Simon Harvey, designer Ana Inés Pita-Jabares and comedy stager Jos Houben. The pack aims to help deepen the understanding of the piece and give students an insight into how it was created. There are also worksheets with ideas for pre and post performance classroom work with activities that can be adapted for students across key stages.
