It is a truth universally acknowledged that Jane Austen’s witty and romantic masterpiece is one of the best-loved stories of all time, dealing with the most important questions in life… Will Mrs Bennett manage to offload her numerous daughters in record time? Will Lizzy and Darcy actually get together? Will creepy Mr Collins just go away please? Join The Pantaloons this summer for this delightfully innovative and hilarious new adaptation.
This year, we encourage you to bring your own picnic to enjoy the show dinner-theatre style as you will not be able to buy food and drink at this event. Enjoy a bottle with your friends, but please remember to make use of the appropriate recycling bins that will be made available.
