Heartbreak Productions are delighted to present a contemporary take on Jane Austen’s world-renowned novel Pride and Prejudice, providing a fresh insight into the amorous exploits and enduring etiquette between family, friends and lovers.
A visit from the Prince Regent approaches and society waits in eager anticipation; will you be able to master the decorum of Regency Britain? Luckily the Association of Higher Etiquette and Manners will be there to educate you in the etiquette of the day.
A combination of Jane Austen’s delicate yet intense observational style with the wit and affection of Heartbreak’s writer-in-residence David Kerby Kendall, ensures that this adaptation will resonate with anyone who has ever been in any romantic relationship.
