Take a step back in time with Chapterhouse Theatre Company as we meet Elizabeth Bennet and her sisters, who on Wednesday (7.30pm), 18 August, will be conducting an open-air performance of Pride and Prejudice at the University of Wales Gregynog Hall.
For those unfamiliar with the plot; Lady Bennet, an interfering matriarch of a dwindling dynasty, engineers various courtships in hope of marrying off her daughters, Elizabeth and Jane, to financially viable suitors – though in spite of this, they stubbornly pursue their own quests for true love. Amongst misunderstandings, mistakes and miscommunications, the two girls must fight for the men they love until Elizabeth can finally surpass her prejudices to see past the proud exterior of the enigmatic Mr Darcy. After all, it is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.
Picnic with family and friends in the magical surroundings of Gregynog Hall’s beautiful gardens and enjoy a wonderful evening of theatre under the stars.
