Jane Austen’s classic text makes its way back to the Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre in 2016 as 2013 hit Pride & Prejudice returns to the capital. Playing alongside the like of Jesus Christ Superstar and Running Wild it will offer an unbeatable opportunity to revisit the characters first penned by Austen in the early 19th century, from Elizabeth Bennet to Mr Darcy, who have become intrinsic parts of popular culture and have been portrayed onstage and onscreen on numerous occasions.
In the early 1800s we are introduced to these characters as we explore the society of the time, with marriage, behaviour and decency explored. Bennet is the main character and it is her experiences as the daughter of an English gentleman in Meryton, Hertfordshire, that captures the imagination of audiences with theatre tickets.
The piece has been adapted from Austen’s original text by Simon Reade, who has many credits to his name, whilst his work with the Bristol Old Vic (where he was the Artistic Director) and the Royal Shakespeare Company (as Literary Manager), both ensure his legacy in the London theatre scene. For the latter his credits include Back To Methuselah and Tales From Ovid, whilst additional credits can be found in film and television, from Private Peaceful (adapted from Peter Nichols’ play, which appeared in the West End in 2013) to What You Will (which he also directed).
In what is likely to be another stand-out season for the venue, Pride & Prejudice appears at the Open Air Theatre in Regent’s Park for a brief run beginning on 2nd September 2016.
