A NOTE FROM OUR DIRECTOR This is a fresh, fluid, somewhat physical adaptation of Jane Austen’s beloved novel. As a true ensemble piece, all cast will be expected to participate with simple scene shifts (moving a lightweight chair, placing props, pulling a curtain, etc.) and quick, clever representations of location. It is possible some performers will almost never leave the stage, in order to keep the seamless, cinematic pacing of the script. There is flexibility to doubling of some roles, so bring your versatility and willingness to play.
