A new adaptation of Jane Austen’s sparkling comedy of manners.
After last year’s tour of ‘Sense and Sensibility’ Hotbuckle are back with their unique style of adaptations of classic novels.

The virtuoso company have been entertaining audiences for over twelve years with their inventive interpretations of familiar texts. Previous productions have included Great Expectations, Jane Eyre, Tess of the d’Urbervilles, Wuthering Heights, David Copperfield and Les Miserables, as well as Austen’s Persuasion and Emma.

Hotbuckle are renowned for their fast-paced, multi-role playing adaptations which cross age and gender traditions, and in their latest offering Hotbuckle invites us to enter the world of The Bennets.

From the headstrong Elizabeth Bennet to the proud Mr Darcy, Hotbuckle’s rich characterisations abound in this latest adaptation by skilled writer Adrian Preater.

Full of humour and invention, this is storytelling at its finest, as we meet five sisters who deal with marriage, morality and misconceptions in unique Hotbuckle style.

This is Jane Austen as you’ve never experienced her before, so, get your tickets and Hotbuckle up, for the carriage ride of your life!
