Watch Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy fall in love all over again -- this time filtered through the world of the internet. Modern voices interject and build on this classic love story in the form of blog posts, chat room discussions, quotes from film adaptations, and even letters from Ms. Austen herself to create a delightfully postmodern view of 19th century England. Written for five actors to play every role, Pride@Prejudice is a hilarious and moving homage to Jane Austen's most beloved novel, as well our love affair with reading.

Published Reviews

"I can't think of another new work staged in Columbus in my 24-plus years as a Dispatch critic that has displayed so much promise or polish... This play seems destined to be seen and celebrated across the country."

Michael Grossberg, Columbus Dispatch

"Pride and Prejudice is one of the best shows I have seen all year -- in any city... It is wildly entertaining."

Lisa Much, Columbus Underground

"Not only artistically viable, but it's brilliantly enhanced with perfectly timed informational and humorous asides."

Metromix Columbus

"The kind of play that's wholly satisfying on every single level."

Screen of Distance

"...at once a faithful story-theater rendering of the book and a cybernetic deconstruction...that actually deepened our experience of Austen's world."

Valley Advocate

"...breathes new life into a beloved story, and very well could inspire a re-reading of the novel."

In the Spotlight

"That this amalgamation works is tribute to Kramer's skill and his affection for the source material."

Pittsfield Gazette

"Kramer's script honors Austen's writing, and the occasional breaks in the fourth wall happen appropriately, naturally, and with great good humor, i.e., total silliness that entices the audience to set aside any of its reserved limitations."

The Arts Etc.

"This play is a techno twist of a classic, complete with tweets, cell phones and Wikipedia... Make no mistake: Despite the tweets and the texts, this is a solid play about a solid piece of literature."

Did You Weekend

"...a bright, flavorful take on love, life and English manners that matches Austen's to a T. Indeed, if imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Austen must be blushing in her grave."

Daily Hampshire Gazette

"...a joyful theatrical experience and one you will not see every day."

Schenectady Daily Gazette

"Die-hard Austen fans will not be disappointed...and newcomers to the plot will easily follow the romantic adventures of the Bennet sisters, helped by the witty asides and notes on the book delivered throughout the play."
