This is a full length play written in two acts which stays true to Jane Austen’s original novel Pride and Prejudice. I wrote this script when I couldn’t find a script that didn’t drastically change her beautiful story of love and family. Expose your high school drama club (or community or college group) to this classic story of Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy. This would also be a great way for your English class to read a classic in a shorter format.
Cast size: 27 (plus room for more) – 10 males; 17 females; possible extras for soldiers and large ball scenes
Running Time: Approximately 2 hours
Included in this 72 page download: full script, original cast list, a blank cast list form to fill in, set design diagram ideas, a “scene change assignments” form
This play has been tested and produced with success. It is a fantastic option if you are looking for a classic or a period piece.
Purchasing this play gives you performance rights for up to 3 performances and copying rights for up to 40 scripts for two years from purchase. If you wish to hold more performances or to make additional copies (ie. classroom sets), please purchase additional licenses. Buying your script here will be much less expensive than buying from a large dramatic publisher, and you will be supporting a fellow teacher! I hope your production is as successful as ours was!
Please contact me if you need more of a preview of the script than I provide in the free preview download here.
