Press Release: Award-winning comedy Pride & Prejudice* (*sort of) comes to The Lowry next month

5 actresses, 20 characters, one microphone… let the party begin!

Direct from its triumph in the West End where it won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of) is a unique and audacious retelling of Jane Austen’s most iconic love story. 

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

Since opening, Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of) has gone on to take the West End by storm – as well as the Olivier Award it scooped winning an Evening Standard Theatre Award for writer and director Isobel McArthur.

This “smart, laugh out loud funny” (Daily Telegraph) show features a string of pop classics including Young Hearts Run Free, Will You Love Me Tomorrow and You’re So Vain.

It’s the 1800s.

It’s party time.

Let the ruthless matchmaking begin.
