Jane Austen's PRIDE AND PREJUDICE - WITH TWO ACTORS To celebrate two hundred years since one of the nation's favourite novel was published, a highly praised, sparkling and fresh stage adaptation of Pride and Prejudice will be at Swansea Grand Theatre on Tuesday 30th September and Wednesday 1st October at 7.30pm.

The show premiered at Theatre Royal, Bury St Edmunds in 2013 and offers a brand new interpretation of one of the nation's favourite love stories. This inventive adaptation sees two actors juggle the full gamut of Austen's well-loved characters; they journey from the Meryton Assembly to the grounds of Pemberley and take Darcy and Lizzy from instant dislike to something altogether more different; every word that is spoken is Austen's.

In this imaginative and loving adaptation by Joannah Tincey, two actors bring to life Austen's words with great skill and agility. She says,

"I wanted to create an adaptation where the characters talk to the audience in the same way that Austen talks to her reader. By addressing the audience directly and allowing the characters to speak for themselves, we are bringing Jane Austen's unique and witty writing style to life in a truly theatrical context."

Pride and Prejudice is sure to please Austen fans, as well as those looking for a fresh and surprising new piece of theatre.

Tickets for this "acting tour de force" (Oxford Times) are available from the Box Office on 01792 475715 or can be purchased online at and are £11.50 - £15.50* with selected concessions available.

* All tickets include a 50p Restoration Fund contribution. Online booking fee applies.
