More Information on Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of)
This is an adaptation like no other. Drawing on over two-hundred years of romantic pop history is Blood of the Young’s unique take on a beloved novel – the hugely acclaimed Pride and Prejudice* (*Sort Of).
Six young women have a story to tell. You might have seen them, emptying the chamber pots and sweeping ash from the grate; the overlooked and the undervalued making sure those above stairs find their happy ending. Of course, they’ve always been running the show – after all ‘You can’t have a whirlwind romance without clean bedding’ – but tonight, the servants are also playing every part.
Men, money and microphones will be fought over in this loving and irreverent all-female adaptation of Jane Austen’s unrivaled literary classic.
Let the ruthless match-making begin.
A co-production with Leeds Playhouse, Birmingham Repertory Theatre, Bristol Old Vic, Northern Stage, Nuffield Southampton Theatres and Oxford Playhouse.

“ Clever, funny, feminist, and not even shy, in the end, of a few powerful moments of true romance”
“ A have-your-cake-and-eat-it adaptation in which the gags are plentiful even when the stakes are high”
“ A killer karaoke soundtrack encompassing everything from Pulp, to Candi Staton, to The Divine Comedy and Etta James”
