Preview: Pride and Prejudice at Westminster Abbey

On 9-10 August Illyria’s open air production of Jane Austen’s will come to the world famous Westminster Abbey’s Dean Yard as part of a UK Tour, now its fifth year. Its run at the 2003 Edinburgh Fringe the queue for returns stretched around the block.


In a social whirlwind of balls, dinners and very eligible officers, Lizzie Bennett and Fitzwilliam Darcy stand alone as the only sane people – and they hate each other! Or do they? Can she see beyond his pride, and can he overcome her prejudice, in order to achieve their mutual happiness? 

If your idea of Jane Austen is costume-drama, empire-lines and tea-parties, then this sparkling adaptation, based entirely on the original novel, is something to make you change your mind. Bring a picnic and have a ball as the irrepressible Illyria sharpen their claws to bring you Jane Austen at her vibrant, pacy, forthright, bitchy best!



Recommended for adults and children aged 5+

Child/Adult tickets: £13.50/£15

Tickets can be bought via the Westminster Abbey site

Dates and tickets for the rest of the tour can be found on Illyria’s website
