Roe Green Visiting Director Series presents Pride and Prejudice, April 18–27, 2014 Wright-Curtis Theatre. Directed by guest director Joseph Hanreddy. Pride and Prejudice Adapted by Joseph Hanreddy and J.R. Sullivan from the novel by Jane Austen. Jane Austen’s witty comedy of manners, and one of the most beloved novels of all time, tells the story of the five Bennet daughters who are in need of suitable husbands. The arrival of the 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 and the arrogant Mr. Darcy, though 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.
