Finding a husband is hardly Elizabeth Bennet’s most urgent priority.  But with four sisters, an overzealous match-making mother, and a string of unsuitable suitors, it’s difficult to escape the subject.  When the independent-minded Elizabeth meets the handsome but enigmatic Mr. Darcy, one question prevails: can they possibly look beyond his pride and her prejudice to make the best match of all?  Jane Austen’s classic 1813 novel comes to life in this refreshingly fast-paced and engaging new adaptation by Jon Jory.
