This holiday season brings the Houston premiere of one of America's most-produced playwrights, the talented Kate Hamill and her raucous adaptation of Jane Austen's PRIDE AND PREJUDICE. Hamill penned the Off-Broadway smash adaptation of SENSE AND SENSIBILITY that ran for nearly a year at BEDLAM Theatre in NYC to rave reviews. In PRIDE AND PREJUDICE, eight actors bring Austen's most famous literary classic to life in a rollicking, festive evening of pure theatricality.
The classic story is that of the outspoken Elizabeth Bennet, who 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, self-involved, tall, vaguely handsome, mildly amusing, and impossibly aristocratic Mr. Darcy keeps popping up at every turn?
4th Wall’s production features a cast and crew full of Houston favorites, including actors Justin Doran, Philip Hayes, Philip Lehl, Leslie Lenert, Rachael Logue, Courtney Lomelo, Jeff McMorrough, and Amy Mire, alongside director Kim Tobin-Lehl, scenic designer Ryan McGettigan, lighting designer Christina Gianneli, sound designer Michael Mullins, costume designer Paige Wilson, properties designer Tina Montgomery, and choreographer Krissy Richmond.
