The World Premiere
of a new work by
Mr Bennet's BrideONLINE BOOKINGS
A PREQUEL TO PRIDE AND PREJUDICE
Award winning playwright and director team up with a stunning cast to present
the year’s most hotly anticipated show…
Mr Bennet’s Bride, a new play by Emma Wood, is an original period comedy,
based on two much-loved characters from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.
Fans of the novel, film or mini-series, will remember with fondness the parents
of Elizabeth Bennet – Mr and Mrs Bennet.
This play explores these characters earlier in their lives, particularly concerning
itself with how this ill matched couple met and decided to marry.
In the late eighteenth century, marriage is a business transaction as much as a
love affair – the family all take a part in the proceedings!
With the shadow of the entail to the Collins family looming large, pressure
mounts on the young Mr Bennet to find a suitable match –
but his unwillingness to play by the rules sets in motion a series of events
that are both comic and at times moving.
