The 2012/13 season marks the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. Although originally published in 1813, Pride & Prejudice is a story that is strikingly contemporary and still remains one of the most beloved and respected works of world literature. This classic romantic comedy is the sparkling tale of the Bennets, a family blessed with five daughters and a mother desperate to marry them off.
L.A. Theatre Works' superlative production stars the acclaimed British screen and stage duo of Martin Jarvis and Rosalind Ayres (Titanic, Masterpiece Theatre, BBC Radio Theatre).
