Character Breakdowns

  • JANE. Late 20s–early 30s. The eldest and most beautiful Bennet daughter. Kind, idealistic, diffident. Always tries to do the right thing.
  • MISS de BOURGH. Lady Catherine’s daughter; a gremlin. Probably allergic to sun. Underneath all her veils, she may be covered in scales.
  • LIZZY. A year or two younger than Jane. Clever, spirited; can be sharp-tongued. Gets flustered, which makes her klutzy. Prides herself on good judgment. Not especially beautiful. Very very scared of marriage, after absorbing the lessons of her parents’ marriage.
  • LYDIA. 14. The youngest Bennet. Lively, prone to imitating others’ behavior and eavesdropping.
  • LADY CATHERINE. Patrician Caesar-meets-drill sergeant.
  • MR. DARCY. Late 30s–40s. One of the richest men in England. Too proper for his own good; awkward in most social contexts. Prides himself on self-control and good judgment. 
  • MR. COLLINS. A pedantic, obtuse man. The original mansplainer. Rector to Lady Catherine.
  • WICKHAM. An unfairly handsome and charming gentleman. Probably a sociopath. Raised with Darcy.
  • MISS BINGLEY. A very rich, very beautiful young woman. Fancies herself witty.
  • MR. BINGLEY. Late 30s–40s. Loves the world and the world loves him. Mr. Darcy’s particular friend. Almost literally a dog.
  • MARY. The third Bennet girl. Violent and dark undertones; prone to pedanticism and sulking. A dark goth Brontë character trapped in an Austen world. Coughs to get attention, or to make a point; may fancy that she is dying.
  • CHARLOTTE LUCAS. Same age as Lizzy. A practical girl with a good sense of humor.
  • MR. BENNET. The patriarch of the Bennet family. Finds amusement in absurdity; often looks for respectable escape from the chaos of his family life. Can be somewhat apathetic; probably a bit depressed, under everything. Enjoys antagonizing. Disappointed in marriage.
  • MRS. BENNET. The matriarch of the Bennet family. Mostly a silly woman, of mean understanding and variable temper. Hypochondriac; when she’s upset, she fancies that she’s dying. The business of her life is to get her daughters married. She traumatizes her family with some regularity.

The Show

Bold, surprising, boisterous, and timely, this P&P for a new era explores the absurdities and thrills of finding your perfect (or imperfect) match in life. The outspoken Lizzy Bennet is determined to never marry, despite mounting pressure from society. But can she resist love, especially when that vaguely handsome, mildly amusing, and impossibly aggravating Mr. Darcy keeps popping up at every turn?! Literature’s greatest tale of latent love has never felt so theatrical, or so full of life than it does in this effervescent adaptation. Because what turns us into greater fools…than the high-stakes game of love?


Ticket sales will be opening soon.

Hamill…has a gift for condensing three-volume novels into galloping two-act plays. Her screwball PRIDE AND PREJUDICE…is as frolicsome as her earlier efforts. It hasn’t met a rib it can’t tickle.
