Kentucky Shakespeare Brings ‘Pride And Prejudice’ To The Kentucky Center In January

In January, Kentucky Shakespeare will present Kate Hamill’s 2017 adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic novel, “Pride and Prejudice.” The production will hit the stage Jan. 4-8 at the Kentucky Center Bomhard theater for six shows. 

“This production captures the essence of this timeless story at top speed and with maximum hilarity,” said Kentucky Shakespeare Associate Artistic Director Amy Attaway in a release. “We get to fall in love with Lizzy and Darcy all over again in the dizzying world of courtship games and high stakes insanity that is Kate Hamill’s version of the Regency period. This extraordinary cast is guaranteed to leave you breathless and with new insight into what makes the perfect match.
