“Could this be the sleeper hit of the Autumn season? The pricing of tickets is certainly attractive (no premium seats) but so too is the premise of Isobel McArthur’s actor-musician version of Jane Austen’s story told from the point of view of the servants and accompanied by pop classics. Yep, Mr Darcy you are so vain. Originating at the Tron Theatre prior to the pandemic, this is an exuberant evening in which social snobbery and sexual politics are skewered as Regency England runs full tilt into contemporary Britain and the Bennett sisters matrimonial prospects are viewed from below stairs. Potentially merry, witty and raucous.”
Review this show


Men, money and microphones will be fought over in this irreverent but affectionate all-female adaptation, where the stakes couldn’t be higher when it comes to romance.

It’s the 1800s.
It’s party time.
Let the ruthless matchmaking begin.

Critic reviews
