Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of) will play its final performance at the Criterion Theatre on 6 February. Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of) was due to play at the Criterion Theatre until 17 April, as part of its open-ended West End run. 

In a statement from Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of) producer David Pugh, he said the show’s closure is down to a lack of audiences throughout the West End following the government’s implementation of Plan B Covid restrictions. Instead of continuing its West End performances, Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of) will now begin a nationwide 60-week tour from September 2022, before returning to London. 

Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of) is a 1990s-pop reinvention of Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice, and follows the story of Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy as told by the Bennet sisters. In a Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of) review, Marianka Swain said: “Its irreverent merriness is definitely a welcome addition to the West End, and makes for a fun night out”.

Isobel McArthur stars in her own work, and is joined by cast members Tori Burgess, Christina Gordon, Hannah Jarrett-Scott, Meghan Tyler. McArthur and Simon Harvey direct, with design by Ana Inés Jabares-Pita, lighting design by Colin Grenfell, sound design by Michael John McCarthy and Luke Swaffield, and choreography by Emily-Jane Boyle.

Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of) is at the Criterion Theatre to 6 February.
