PRIASE FOR PRIDE&PREJUDICE

Meet the Bennets- a lower gentry family with a problem. In a period when women were pawns in a man's world, the five Bennet daughters have all reached marriageable age at the same time. Pride and Prejudice follows the family's adventures through the rocky romance of Lizzie and the dour and ill-mannered Mr. Darcy. Elizabeth, on hearing of Darcy's disdain for the locals (and a false tale of his chicanery), develops a hostility toward him, which, after many tribulations and witty, hostile encounters, inevitably leads to mutual admiration and true love. Such a barebones description of Austen's novel necessarily fails to include the long months of romantic complications and rich array of subsidiary characters that make the play such a delight.
LIZ NICHOLLS, The Edmonton Journal

GRAHAM HICKS, Hicks on Six
"Tom Wood hit the bull’s-eye with his adaptation of Jane Austen’s masterpiece.”
“Everything about it is just right.”
“This Pride and Prejudice.. should be one of the highlights of your theatre-going career.”
“A show that must, must, must be seen”
COLIN MACLEAN, The Edmonton Sun
“This Pride and Prejudice is as much a meditation on appearances versus realities, on the getting of wisdom, of the nature of love- as was the original novel. All is captured”
“Full of graces, manners and machinations among the twits and swains of 19th century England, the Citadel begins its season with a vibrant, life-affirming production.”
"This is a production, with no end of theatrical invention, that speeds by leaving you wondering where the time went.
