Pride & Prejudice* Sort Of

UK Tour

Associate Sound Designer

An adaptation like no other, drawing on over two-hundred years of romantic pop history this is Blood of the Young’s unique take on a beloved novel - the hugely acclaimed Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of). 

Six young women have a story to tell. You might have seen them, emptying the chamber pots and sweeping ash from the grate; the overlooked and the undervalued making sure those above stairs find their happy ending. Of course, they’ve always been running the show - after all ‘You can’t have a whirlwind romance without clean bedding’ – but tonight, the servants are also playing every part.

Men, money and microphones will be fought over in this loving and irreverent all-female adaptation of Jane Austen’s unrivalled literary classic. Let the ruthless match-making begin!

Reviews

"a total blast of hilarity from start to finish. It sticks faithfully to Austen's brilliant story, while opening it up into a riot of fun, colour and mischief-making"

- Whats On Stage

"Layer after layer of brilliance"

- The Scotsman

"A kick-ass delight from start to finish"

- The Herald

"this all-singing, all-female retelling is as richly layered as a wedding cake"

- The Telegraph

" a riotous, joyful and ground-breaking piece of work that embodies the spirit of Austen and blasts her into the 21st century"

- Broadway World

"Pride and Prejudice (Sort of) revels in Austen’s evergreen caustic humour, turning the Regency comedy into a belter of a night out"

- Plays To See

 

"A joyously inventive, funny, satirical yet reverential masterpiece delivered by a cast that lovingly owns the play; an audience roaring and on its feet at the final curtain"

- Stage Talk Magazine

"this is a raucous performance and I guarantee any girl or woman would love it - and plenty of men too"

- Bristol Post

 

"laughs aplenty, both period and modern as the young, six-strong cast exchange roles and genders at break-neck speed, switching from single-minded women one moment to anally retentive men the next"

- The Stage
