Celebrating the bicentennial of Jane Austen's classic novel, Pride and Prejudice, the Department of Theatre and Dance at Santa Clara University proudly stages the play adapted by Joseph Hanreddy and J.R. Sullivan. Jane Austen's witty comedy of manners - one of the most beloved novels of all time - tells the story of the five Bennet daughter who are in need of suitable husbands. The arrival of wealthy Mr. Bingley and his best friend Mr. Darcy stirs romantic thoughts among the sisters and the matrimonial matchmaking begins. Tensions mount between the young, spitfire Elizabeth Bennet and the arrogant Mr. Darcy, the he cannot escape a growing attraction to her rebellious behavior. A tangle of mistaken impressions and unexpected revelations keeps Austen's famous young couple apart until a major social error ironically allows Darcy to swallow his pride and Elizabeth to rethink her prejudice.
