Pride and Prejudice - Adapted for the stage by Simon Reade

I saw this at the Oxford Playhouse earlier this year and it was wonderfully done. As any die-hard Austen fan knows, this particular work of hers is not easy to transcribe into film, let alone theatre. The costumes were spot-on and the set design very impressive. Lighting, music and sound complement the story as it unfoldswhilst managing to match to the mannerisms of each character.
All in all, a beautiful transcription that preserves the charm of the best-loved novel. A highly recommended show. The Theatre Royal Bath Productions are currently touring the UK with this so catch it while you can.
