Pride and Prejudice




I had not known you a month before I felt that you were the last man in the world whom I could ever be prevailed on to marry - Pride and Prejudice

Elizabeth Bennett is young, clever and attractive, but her mother is a nightmare and she and her four sisters are in dire need of financial security and escape in the shape of husbands. The arrival of nice Mr Bingley and arrogant Mr Darcy in the neighbourhood turns all their lives upside down in this witty drama of friendship, rivalry, enmity and love.
