- November 4, 2012 at 7:00 pm
“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife;” and so begins this revered literary work by one of Britain’s great authors. To celebrate the 200th anniversary of this masterpiece, America’s premier radio theater company brings Jane Austen’s glorious novel Pride and Prejudice to life with this rich adaptation by Cristina Calvit. Set in the English countryside, the story navigates through the intricacies of marriage, manners, and morals among polite British society as it follows the Bennets, a family of five daughters and their meddlesome mother. At the heart of this cherished story is the turbulent courtship between the spirited and independent Elizabeth, who wishes to marry for love, and the arrogant but honorable Mr. Darcy. Broadway and television veterans Jane Carr and Nicholas Hormann join this talented cast as Mr. and Mrs. Bennet. Experience this classic as never before through the live radio drama format of this esteemed Los Angeles company.
