Take a step back in time with Chapterhouse Theatre Company to meet Elizabeth Bennet, Jane Austen’s most loveable heroine. When Elizabeth meets the rude and abrupt Mr Darcy, she loathes him at first sight. But is there more to him than meets the eye?

Brought to life by award winning writer Laura Tuner, this brand-new adaptation celebrates the 200th Anniversary of Jane Austen’s death and promises to be the most splendid evening of the summer. So, join friends and family to lose yourself in this unforgettable love story. After all, it is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.

Chapterhouse Theatre Company

In the Winter of 1999 Chapterhouse Theatre Company took its first steps towards becoming one of a number of touring theatre companies specialising in performing under the stars and at some of the most beautiful gardens the UK had to offer. The very first performance was at Herstmonceux Castle where the company performed Romeo and Juliet by the moat of the beautiful Tudor building. It was the start of an incredible 17 years which has seen the company go from strength to strength changing and adapting to new audiences and challenges every year but holding the same principals of producing warm, traditional and hopefully magical theatre in magical surroundings.

It remains a pleasure and honour to create shows for both the wonderful venues we have the privilege of visiting and also the incredible audiences who join us on our summer evenings. Thank you so much from us to all of you for making it possible for us to continue to bring theatre to you
