Images have been released offering a first glimpse at the cast of Pride and Prejudice, which opens at the Sheffield Crucible tomorrow.
The cast also includes Ronke Adekoluejo (Jane Bennet), Leona Allen (Kitty Bennet), Matthew Aubrey (Mr Collins), Michele Austin (Mrs Bennet), Adam Buchanan (Mr Bingley), Grace Chilton (Mary Bennet), Nell Hudson (Lydia Bennet), Emma McDonald (Georgiana Darcy), Abigail McKern (Lady Catherine de Bourgh), Sam Parks (Sir William Lucas / Mr Reynolds), Royce Pierreson (Mr Wickham), Corinna Powlesland (Mrs Gardiner), Ruby Thomas (Caroline Bingley), Howard Ward (Mr Bennet) and Eleanor Yates (Charlotte Lucas).
They will be joined by members of the Sheffield Peoples' Theatre to complete the company.
Artistic director Daniel Evans said, "Tamara Harvey has assembled a strong and diverse cast to take on Jane Austen's most famous novel. This production continues our commitment to redress the gender balance in our programmed work. In Pride & Prejudice, Austen wittily comments on her own society and I'm thrilled that our production will celebrate Austen's work whilst reflecting our own community."
