Pride and Prejudice, a play

112 pages50 minutes


New, revised edition for 2016. Janet Munsil's witty, romantic, and ingenious adaptation of Jane Austen's beloved tale of Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy is remarkable for capturing the tone and compressing the complexity of the story into a fast-paced, funny, and fiercely romantic two hours on stage. Sold-out and held-over in numerous large professional theatres, including Canada's National Arts Centre, Theatre Calgary, and The Arts Club Stanley Theatre, this adaptation is also extremely popular with schools and community theatres for its clarity, comedy, and large number of great acting roles - especially for women.

“Worth ovations - a sell-out hit.” Calgary Sun

“Remarkable . . . a fine and faithful adaptation Austen’s novel captures the tone and compresses the complexity of the story.” - Burnaby Now

“Delightful...breathes life into the novel, transforming Austen’s wry, verbal humour into lightness and gaiety, while not overlooking the novel’s darker themes.” - Vancouver Courier

“Vivid, eloquent, and very funny.” - Ottawa Citizen

“Simple, crisp elegance - downright brilliantly conceived.” - Brokenleg Review

“Funny, fierce, and romantic. Undeniably engaging.” - Calgary Herald

"Blazingly fast and funny . . . (Austen) purists may breathe easy. Perfectly accessible to romance fans, and those who can tolerate a little romance with their comedy." -
