Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of) tickets

An Austen adaptation like no other

It’s a truth universally acknowledged that a Jane Austen novel must be adapted - and this time, 30 years of pop hits and an irreverent all-female cast bring a bold new Pride and Prejudice to the Criterion Theatre!

Pairing Austen’s witty remarks with hilarious karaoke tunes, Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of) sees a group of servants chuck away the chamber pots and play every part in the ultimate romantic comedy. 

Featuring an irresistible soundtrack including Carly Simon and Candi Staton, and giving the audience knowing nods to their favourite Mr. Darcy moments, this team of overlooked and undervalued girls are out to make a match in the West End.

Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of) burst onto the scene at Edinburgh Lyceum Theatre in 2020 before setting out on tour across the UK. Created by Isobel McArthur, who also stars, the show features six actresses playing every part, from the hapless Mr. Collins to the meddling Mrs. Bennett. 

Full of wit, music and massive heart, Pride and Prejudice sort of tickets promise an unforgettable night out - so dress up in your gowns and waistcoats, and get the karaoke going for this riotous new show.

Excellent, entertaining and raucous retelling of P&P from the servants' point of view. Funny and engaging with anachronistic swearing and also regional accents adding to the quirkiness. Exuberant cast, all pulling their weight and giving top performances. Two of the five cast were understudies at the performance I saw and you couldn’t tell which they were - spot on.

Great show for the adults. An eclectic mix of humour and music. Sticks irreverently to the plot so you may find it funnier if you have read the book or seen a TV or film production so that you know the story.

Fantastic show, so happy I got to see it and so sad it ended before its run was due to end. Superb cast, fantastic music, joyous, funny, daft, all women, woohoo! A special shout out to Isobel Mcarthur who wrote, directed and performed; what an awesome talent, I’m going to keep my eye out for her. Plus, she was totally believable as a male character! I am in my 50s and went with my 87 yr old mum and we both loved it. Thank you to the cast.

This show is very funny and enjoyable (but beware, plenty of swearing!). An updated and witty retelling of the classic Jane Austen tale. The cast of five are extremely talented. It's definitely a must see before the end of it's run on 6th February. Definitely recommend.

Wasn’t sure what to expect with this show at all, but had a LOT of fun. The entire cast are so talented. I would say that having some knowledge of Pride & Prejudice would be essential for getting the full enjoyment from this show.

Such an ingenious show with a unique spin on it. Loved how the five female characters played different characters with comedic touches. The show was spaced with contemporary songs to reflect certain scenes. Yes there was some swearing and 'uncouth' language for a take on a Jane Austen novel, but somehow it works very well.
