This isn't your grandmother's Austen! Bold, surprising, boisterous, and timely, this Pride and Prejudice for a new era explores the absurdities and thrills of finding your perfect (or imperfect) match in life. The outspoken Lizzy Bennet is determined to never marry, despite mounting pressure from society. But can she resist love, especially when that vaguely handsome, mildly amusing, and impossibly aggravating Mr. Darcy keeps popping up at every turn? Literature's greatest tale of latent love has never felt so theatrical, or so full of life than it does in this effervescent adaptation. Because of what turns us into greater fools...than the high-stakes game of love?

"Hamill...has a gift for condensing three-volume novels into galloping two-act plays. Her screwball PRIDE AND PREJUDICE...is as frolicsome as her earlier efforts. It hasn't met a rib it can't tickle." -NY Times
