An Olivier-award winning on-stage comedy is coming to Bristol Old VicPosted on: 12 Apr 2023
Fresh from an award-winning triumph in the West End, ‘Pride and Prejudice* (*Sort Of)’ will run in Bristol for a two-week stint next month.
‘Pride and Prejudice* (*Sort Of)’ will show at Bristol Old Vic between Tuesday 9 and Saturday 20 May 2023.
This unique and audacious retelling of Jane Austen’s most iconic tale of romance last year won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Comedy: “It’s the 1800s. It’s Party Time. Let the ruthless matchmaking begin.”
Tickets for this show are available now from the Bristol Old Vic website.
Men, money and microphones will all be fought over in this wild, irreverent yet affectionate stage adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice where the stakes couldn’t be higher when it comes to romance.
A widespread critical and award-winning success, the production has been described by The Daily Telegraph as “smart, laugh out loud funny” and features a plethora of stone-cold pop classics such as ‘Young Hearts Run Free’, ‘Will You Love Me Tomorrow’ and ‘You’re So Vain’.
For the evening performances on Friday 12, Saturday 13, Friday 19 and Saturday 20 May, plus the matinee on Sunday 14 May, there will be ‘Singalong Karaoke’ karaoke, allowing visitors to do their best impression of the show’s leading ladies – yes, there will be ABBA!
Pride and Prejudice* (*Sort Of)’s run in Bristol comes as part of an extensive UK tour that also sees the production drop by theatres in Chester, Birmingham, Leeds, Blackpool, Truro, Malvern, Exeter and Norwich throughout 2023. Visit the production website for more information.
