Limerick Youth Theatre and County Limerick Youth Theatre present Pride and Prejudice

Pascoe’s comic adaptation of Pride and Prejudice will be staged outdoors in The Hunt Museum Gardens on 16, 17 and 18 August.

Limerick city and county youth theatres will join forces to stage an environmentally-friendly piece with props and costumes made out of sustainable materials using the gardens, the river Shannon and the sunset to provide all the theatrical elements to make this a stunning piece of outdoor theatre.

About the play: 

The Bennet family has more daughters than income and more income than sense. When an eligible bachelor moves to the neighbourhood Mrs Bennet froths over with frenzied attempts to get her five daughters married at any cost – well not *cost*, they haven’t any money, but no man is too rude, no soldier too untrustworthy, no cousin too annoying to be below consideration.

As Shane Hickey O’Mara, director of Pride and Prejudice (and Artistic Director of CoLYT) says “Jane Austen’s novel has been adapted numerous times for the stage and screen, and has even spawned graphic novels and Zombies.
