Center Stage Presents A World Premiere Production of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice

A World Premiere Production of Jane Austen’s 
Pride and Prejudice

Adapted by Christopher Baker
Sep 11–Oct 11

“As fresh and relevant as the day it was written.”—The Independent (UK)

Jane Austen’s mastery of manners and morals will be on full display in Center Stage’s new production of her beloved masterpiece, Pride and Prejudice. In the Bennet sisters’ 19th-century English world, marriage is the prize, but for second-eldest, Lizzy, companionship trumps blind courtship. Enter Mr. Darcy, and one of literature’s most iconic and tempestuous romances takes flight. Journey through a world quite unlike—and yet perhaps not so different from—our own, as Lizzy and Darcy learn that first impressions aren’t all they seem, and that second chances can lead to answers that have been there the entire time.

In July 1815, the people of Baltimore laid the cornerstone of the Washington monument on Charles Street in Mount Vernon.

Two hundred years later, it’s ready for another coming-out party. Read More →
