Event Description
Pride and Prejudice

Pride and Prejudice, written by Jane Austen and first published in 1813, is a classic tale that explores themes of love, class, and societal expectations in early 19th-century England. The story primarily follows Elizabeth Bennet, one of five daughters of the Bennet family. Her mother, Mrs. Bennet, is determined to find suitable husbands for her daughters; their futures depend on finding advantageous marriages as the family estate is set to be passed to a distant male relative.

Elizabeth must navigate the societal norms of the time, where social status and wealth play crucial roles in determining one’s eligibility for marriage. The proud and reserved Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy, belonging to the wealthy elite, initially clashes with Elizabeth due to his perceived arrogance. However, as the story progresses, misunderstandings and personal growth lead to a complex and evolving relationship between Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy.

Celebrated for its witty dialogue, memorable characters, and timeless portrayal of the challenges and triumphs of romantic relationships, Austen’s keen observation and satire of the manners and morals of the time contribute to the story’s enduring appeal.

Adapted and directed by Marsha Mayhak.
