Pride and Prejudice
In the words of Jane Austen narrated by Hayley Mills
Saturday 10 June 7.30pm
Tickets: £18 / £16
We are thrilled that Oscar winning actress Hayley Mills will be joining us for this unique performance. Created to honour the bicentenary of Jane Austen's death in 2017, this promises to be an unusually intimate performance of the beloved author's most famous work -one of the most popular novels of all time. The enduring story of the romance between Elizabeth Bennett and Mr Darcy will be read aloud in a drawing-room setting, in much the same way that Jane herself ﬁrst read the story aloud to the Austen family and their closest friends. Weaving around those words will be Carl Davis' magical score from the much loved BBC TV drama series of the 1990s.
The music, specially adapted by Mr Davis, will be performed by two of the UK's most sought after musicians: the pianist Ashley Wass, and violinist Matthew Trusler. The book has been abridged by novelist and Austen biographer, Gill Hornby.
