A theatre company is to visit Norfolk with its comic adaptation of Pride and Prejudice to mark the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s death.

The critically-acclaimed Pantaloons theatre company is known for its anarchic retellings of classic works.

“We are known for being somewhat silly,” says writer and director Mark Hayward.

“But with our Pride and Prejudice we stay respectful to the things that people love about the book in the first place.

“This production gives Austen fans what they are looking for in a staging – the romance, the scandals – whilst at the same time providing a great introduction to those who are new to the story and also interweaving the elements that make a show intrinsically Pantaloony.”

The show will take place at Botesdale Village Hall on Saturday, April 15 at 7.30pm as part of the Diss Corn Hall On Tour series.

Tickets are £12 or £10 concessions and are available online at www.thecornhall.co.uk
