The Edmonds-Woodway Players will present their first production of the 2019-20 year, Pride & Prejudice, Thursday through Sunday, Nov. 21-24. Show times are at 7 p.m. Nov. 21-23, plus a 3 p.m. show Nov. 24.
Pride and Prejudice is a streamlined theatrical version of Jane Austen’s classic novel involving manners, courtship and relationships. Finding a husband is hardly Elizabeth Bennet’s most urgent priority. But with three sisters, an overzealous match-making mother, and a string of unsuitable suitors, it’s difficult to escape the subject. When the independent-minded Elizabeth meets the handsome but enigmatic Mr. Darcy, all feelings of attraction are muted by his pride and her prejudice. As their worlds keep colliding, their attraction increases. But they must first overcome their own weaknesses and many other obstacles before the most famous courtship in history can begin.
The show will take place in the Edmonds-Woodway High School Theater, 7600 212th St. S.W., Edmonds.
Tickets are $7 for general admission and $5 for ASB, children and seniors.
