Pride and Sensibility: Now Here's a Jane Austen Mash Up that Would Interest Me

Kenilworth Theatre Team Take on Austen Mash-Up Challenge

Actors from the Talisman Theatre in Kenilworth will be performing Pride and Sensibility - a combination of Jane Austen's two novels, Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility - only two days after seeing the script. Featured characters are Mr. Darcy, Lizzy Bennet, the Dashwood sisters and Wickham and Willoughby. Read more about the production in the above link.

Tickets to the show at 7:30 pm on Sunday, July 25, cost £7.50 each. The proceeds will go to Side by Side, a charity which supports the education of children with learning disabilities alongside those without. There will also be a 'silent' auction in the theatre foyer.

Vic, thank you NOT for telling about this! I would love to see it, and now I'm frustrated that I can't!

The article described it. It's a mashup of two novels. Should be, well, novel!

Kenilworth is up in Warwickshire.
A good days journey there and back for me.

It's got a great castle, infact one of the best castle remains in England (Not Wales).

Quite near Stratford upon Avon and Birmingham.

This sounds quite clever. Let's warm up the Lear jet and jaunt off for the weekend Vic!

I am scratching my head in wonder how they got permission from Bone the illustrator to use that image! It has the copyright symbol right on the front. :-(
