Join The Pantaloons Theatre Company for a comic adaptation of Pride and Prejudice in the beautiful open-air surroundings of Sheffield Botanical Gardens.
Having staged hilarious versions of Sherlock Holmes, The Canterbury Tales, The War of the Worlds and many of Shakespeare’s plays, The Pantaloons are well-known for their anarchic translations of classic literary works. Founded in 2004 as an open-air theatre company, The Pantaloons first developed their attention-grabbing and interactive performance style while busking in parks and on the streets. Now they are one of the UK’s most prolific touring companies; this summer they will tour outdoor venues across the country with their spin on Jane Austen’s masterpiece, Pride and Prejudice.
The Pantaloons give Austen’s well-loved story a contemporary twist.
Romantic and witty, Pride and Prejudice is one of the best-loved romances of all time. In this adaptation, The Pantaloons give the well-loved story a contemporary twist – treading a fine line between a comical retelling of the original text and a mockery of the numerous TV and film versions that followed.
A glorious show matched to the beautiful surroundings of Sheffield Botanical Gardens.
Featuring a fine blend of live music, audience interaction, physical performance and lots of humour, the production will satisfy fans of Austen’s literary work as well as providing a great introduction for those new to the story.
Don’t forget to pack up a picnic and something to sit on too. This is sure to be a glorious show perfectly matched to the beautiful surroundings of Sheffield Botanical Gardens.
