Illyria’s production of Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen

Illyria’s production of Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice is coming to Holsworthy!

This open-air production of Pride & Prejudice will be in Badock Gardens, Holsworthy on Saturday 12 August at 6:30pm.

In a whirlwind of balls, dinners and very eligible officers, Lizzy Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy stand alone as the only sane, thoughtful people – and they hate each other! Or do they? Can she see beyond his pride, and can he overcome her prejudice, in order to achieve happiness?

If your idea of Jane Austen is stuffy costume drama then this sparkling adaptation may make you change your mind. Bring a picnic and have a ball as the irrepressible Illyria sharpen their claws to bring you Jane Austen at her vibrant, bitchy best!

Running time (approx): 2hrs 20min (inc 20 minute interval).
