This isn’t your grandmother’s Austen!  Join us under the stars for this bold, surprising, boisterous, and timely, adaptation. The outspoken Lizzy Bennet is determined to never marry, despite mounting pressure from society. But can she resist love, especially when that vaguely handsome, mildly amusing, and impossibly aggravating Mr. Darcy keeps popping up at every turn?! Join us as literature’s greatest tale of latent love comes to life in this sparkling, screw-ball adaptation.

Bring your own blanket or lawn chair and warm layers - the jokes in Act 2 are more fun if you’re cozy!
