It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife... The ultimate romantic comedy, Jane Austenâs story of the five Bennet sisters and their relentless pursuit of suitable husbands is one of the best-loved novels ever written, constantly topping the polls of favourite books. When feisty Elizabeth Bennet first meets handsome bachelor Fitzwilliam Darcy, she thinks him arrogant and conceited. When she later discovers that he has scuppered the relationship between his friend Bingley and her beloved sister Jane, she is determined to dislike him more than ever. In the sparkling comedy of manners that follows, the familyâs lives are turned upside down as Jane Austen shows the folly of judging by first impressions and pokes gentle fun at the affectations and etiquette of provincial middle-class life.Performers Felicity Montagu (Mrs Bennet), Matthew Kelly (Mr Bennet), Tafline Steen (Elizabeth Bennet), Benjamin Dilloway (Mr Darcy), Doria Croll (Lady Catherine De Bourgh), Hollie Edwin (Jane Bennet), Mari Izzard (Lydia Bennet), Leigh Quinn (Mary Bennet/Annabel De Bourgh), Anna Crichlow (Kitty Bennet/Georgiana Darcy), Jordan Mifsud (Mr Bingley), Steven Meo (Mr Collins), Daniel Abbott (Mr Wickham), Kirsty Rider (Caroline Bingley), Francesca Bailey (Charlotte Lucas), Charlotte Palmer (Mrs Gardiner), Mark Rawlings (Sir William Lucas).
