Pride and Prejudice is Jane Austen’s classic comic romance, in which the five Bennet sisters try to find that most elusive creature: a single man in possession of a large fortune. Sparks fly when sweet, pretty Jane meets their new neighbor, Mr. Bingley, but her sister Elizabeth is offended by his haughty friend, Mr. Darcy. This is Jane Austen at the height of her powers, complete with ironic narration, hilariously drawn supporting characters, and romantic suspense. In this production, The Online Stage presents a fully dramatized version of Austen’s most enduringly popular novel.
I play Lydia Bennett, the second-youngest Bennett sister and a free-spirited individual. Listen to a sample here.
