An Alexandra Palace and Rose Theatre Production in association with Oxford Playhouse.
By Jane Austen
Adapted by Jeff James, with James Yeatman
Directed by Jeff James
Featuring a soundtrack of Robyn, Lizzo, Dua Lipa and Cardi B, Jane Austen’s classic romantic comedy is riotously reimagined for the twenty-first century.
Jeff James and James Yeatman’s captivating adaptation retains the quick wit and scandal of Austen’s novel but switches Regency ballrooms for neon lights to present this 19th-century romance as you’ve never seen it before.
⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘Jane Austen meets Lizzo – a mischievously fun modern take.’ – Daily Telegraph
⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘The explosive soundtrack plays at full throttle, the wacky dancing is practically an extra character in its own right and the comic performances are full of exuberant and eccentric flourishes. Joyfully silly.’ – The Guardian
⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘As innovative and funny an interpretation as you’re likely to see.’ – The Stage
⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘Sparklingly intelligent and very funny. Austen would have loved it.’ – The Times
⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘Sublimely funny. A riot of soapsuds and sexual tension. Mines terrific comedy from Austen’s novel by highlighting what is already there and giving it a modern twist.’ – The Telegraph
⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘Makes you wonder why more period adaptations don’t have their characters slipping and sliding in soap and bubbles.’ – What’s On Stage
‘Probably the only Austen staging ever to feature a riotous foam party and voguing – it’s hard not to love it for that.’ – Evening Standard
⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘It’s a hoot — and I was totally persuaded.’ – Georgina Brown (Daily Mail)
⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘Very funny and subversive, makes Austen’s writing feel as modern and relevant as it deserves.’ – Broadway World
‘Like Bridgerton on steroids’ – More audience reactions this way.
