CMU Theatre presents adaptation of Jane Austen's classic Pride and Prejudice

CMU's Department of Theatre Arts will present the second production in its 50th anniversary season themed Inquiry, Discovery, Celebration, October 31-November 9 in the Moss Performing Arts Center Robinson Theatre. The production is the Jane Austen classic, Pride and Prejudice and will be directed by tenured faculty member, Jill Van Brussel.

Marriage is an inevitable fact of life for the five Bennet sisters – Jane, Elizabeth, Mary, Kitty, and Lydia. With the family estate entailed away to their closest male cousin, their only hope to advance in life is to find a rich and single man – and one has just arrived in the form of the very handsome and very well-off Charles Bingley. The kindhearted and beautiful Jane seems poised to make a match, but must contend with her overly zealous mother, his snobbish sister, and a slippery social ladder. And when Bingley's taciturn friend Fitzwilliam Darcy shows an interest in the opinionated and spirited Elizabeth, the situation becomes more complicated than either of them expect. The fire and wit of Jane Austen's classic 1813 romance shines through in this vibrant new adaptation.
