LYNDEN — The play version of “Pride and Prejudice,” adapted by Kate Hamill from the novel of Jane Austen, will be performed by Lynden Christian High School students on four evenings, with Allison Ross directing.
Performances are at 7 p.m. Oct. 11, 13, 19 and 20 in the school’s Worship and Fine Arts Center. Tickets are $10 for adults and $6 students and seniors over 62. For tickets, call 360-318-9525 or go to the Central Office.
In this comedic adaptation, the outspoken Elizabeth Bennet faces mounting pressure from her status-conscious mother to secure a suitable marriage. But is marriage suitable for a woman of Elizabeth’s intelligence and independence? Especially when the irritating, aloof and self-involved, but also tall, vaguely handsome, mildly amusing and impossibly aristocratic 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,” says Dramatists Play Service.
