Our amazing client Tori Burgess is going out on tour (alongside literary client Meghan Tyler), in a revival of Pride and Prejudice* (*Sort Of).
An adaptation like no other, drawing on over two-hundred years of romantic pop history this is Blood of the Young’s unique take on a beloved novel – the hugely acclaimed Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of).
Six young women have a story to tell. You might have seen them, emptying the chamber pots and sweeping ash from the grate; the overlooked and the undervalued making sure those above stairs find their happy ending. Of course, they’ve always been running the show – after all ‘You can’t have a whirlwind romance without clean bedding’ – but tonight, the servants are also playing every part.
Men, money and microphones will be fought over in this loving and irreverent all-female adaptation of Jane Austen’s unrivalled literary classic. Let the ruthless match-making begin!
The 2019/2020 tour begins at Bristol Old Vic on Friday 13th Sept and tours various venues around the UK until early 2020.
