An irreverent reworking of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice is transferring to the West End's Criterion Theatre in October.

Written by Isobel McArthur, Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of) was first seen at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2018, in a co-production with the Tron in Glasgow, before touring.

According to press material, the show "is a unique and audacious retelling of Jane Austen's most iconic love story. Men, money and microphones will be fought over in this irreverent but affectionate all-female adaptation, where the stakes couldn't be higher when it comes to romance."

McArthur plays both Darcy and Mrs Bennet in the all-female production, with further casting to be announced. It's being produced in the West End by David Pugh.

Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of) follows Amelie at the Criterion.
