annapolis shakespearr“All of the wit and romance of Jane Austen’s classic 1813 novel come to life in this refreshingly fast-paced and engaging new adaptation. Finding a husband is hardly Elizabeth Bennet’s most urgent priority. But with four sisters, an overzealous match-making mother, and a string of unsuitable suitors, it’s difficult to escape the subject. When the independent-minded Elizabeth meets the handsome but enigmatic Mr. Darcy, she is determined not to let her feelings triumph over her own good sense — but the truth turns out to be slipperier than it seems. In a society where subtle snubs and deceit proliferate, is it possible for Elizabeth and Darcy to look beyond his pride and her prejudice, and to make the best match of all?”

“Jon Jory has cleverly crafted a narrative structure where everyone moves the plot forward with description and commentary, he has also done everything he can to remain true to Austen’s prose, which is why this evening is a treat not only for fans of Austen’s work such as I, but a great entree for the uninitiated to discover the world of Mr. Bennet and his five daughters.”
– Mark Turvin, Back Stage Newspapers

Jon Jory’s Pride and Prejudice is “…an exceptionally clear, funny and moving version.”  — San Francisco Chronicle

The cast includes Nello DeBlasio (Mr. Darcy), Caitlin McWethy (Elizabeth), Carol Randolph (Mrs. Bennet), and Jim Reiter (Mr. Bennet).
