Pride & Prejudice: Theatre for Young Audiences Adaptation
Don’t miss Pride & Prejudice adapted by Jon Jory young audiences, from the novel by Jane Austen.
This production, directed by Courtney O’Connor, runs between December 1st and December 9th.
Finding a husband isn’t Elizabeth Bennet’s most urgent priority, but it’s difficult to escape the subject—especially once she meets the enigmatic Mr. Darcy. But in a society where subtle snubs and deceit proliferate, is it possible for Elizabeth and Darcy to look beyond his pride and her prejudice? This refreshingly fast-paced and engaging new adaptation of one of the most beloved novels of all time captures the wit and romance of Jane Austen’s writing. The story may be set in Regency-era England, but our struggles with love, money, pride, and prejudice are still ongoing today.
Local bestseller KRISTIN CASHORE shares her novel Jane, Unlimited
Harvard Book Store welcomes local bestselling author KRISTIN CASHORE, author of the award-winning Graceling Realm series, for a discussion of her highly anticipated new standalone novel: Jane, Unlimited—a novel about grief, adventure, storytelling, and finding yourself in a world of seemingly infinite choices.
Jane has lived an ordinary life, raised by her aunt Magnolia—an adjunct professor and deep sea photographer. Jane counted on Magnolia to make the world feel expansive and to turn life into an adventure. But Aunt Magnolia was lost a few months ago in Antarctica on one of her expeditions. Now, with no direction, a year out of high school, and obsessed with making umbrellas that look like her own dreams (but mostly just mourning her aunt), she is easily swept away by Kiran Thrash—a glamorous, capricious acquaintance who shows up and asks Jane to accompany her to a gala at her family’s island mansion called Tu Reviens.
