This west coast-premiere at The Rep promises to breathe new life into a classic love story while keeping the era’s extravagant Regency-era costumes intact. “This isn’t your grandmother’s Austen,” says playwright Kate Hamill, who created this new adaptation. “I wanted to make [Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy] slightly more human, two slightly socially awkward, slightly too-clever people who fall in love.” It’s directed by Amanda Dehnert of critically acclaimed productions at Rhode Island’s Trinity Repertory Company and the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.
