THE PLAY SYNOPSIS: a classic love story, Pride and Prejudice is set in Regency era England. The play follows the character development of Elizabeth Bennet, an independent and intelligent woman who is loved by a self-reserved and powerful man Mr. Darcy. They learn about the repercussions of hasty judgments and eventually come to appreciate the difference between being superficial and being true to one’s self. A classic piece filled with comedy. Its humour lies in its honest depiction of manners, education, marriage and the distribution of money during the Regency era.
