Pride and Prejudice

Enjoy this unmissable open air performance from Chapterhouse Theatre Company

Enjoy an open-air production of Pride and Prejudice on Tuesday 13th August, as Chapterhouse Theatre Company presents Jane Austen’s iconic novel with an evening of magical theatre in the Beaulieu grounds.

Step back in time over two hundred years and meet Elizabeth Bennet and her sisters as they navigate the mire of manners of Regency society. With stunning period costume, timeless wit, and a romantic original score, Chapterhouse’s Pride and Prejudice is a faithful telling of Austen’s greatest work. Join family and friends for an evening of magical theatre as they bring the world’s favourite love story to the Beaulieu grounds.

about the play

Mrs Bennet, the unfortunate mother of several unmarried daughters of marriageable age, knows better than anyone that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife. She is delighted to hear of the arrival of a new gentleman lodger, one Mr Bingley, to the local manor house. When the eldest Bennet sister Jane catches Bingley’s eye, the course seems set, but sparks fly between her younger sister Elizabeth and Bingley’s enigmatic friend Mr Darcy, and their animosity threatens to upheave the lives of everyone around them.

One of the world’s most beloved love stories and Jane Austen’s most enduring work, Pride and Prejudice is a timeless classic about the power of first impressions and the unlikely joys and sorrows of love.
