Pride and Prejudice
After the runaway success of professional theatre in the Woods last year, Warley Woods Community Trust is really pleased to welcome the return of Heartbreak Productions on Friday 1st July with a performance of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. This is part of their national tour, celebrating 20 years of outdoor productions.
Heartbreak’s productions are really accessible and designed to involve the audience in every way they can – not just as observers. The production promises to resonate with everyone who has ever been in love. It has been adapted by the company’s writer in residence, David Kerby Kendall and will highlight the wit, fun and absurdities of the characters. The drama is intermingled with period dance, music and song.
Last year was an absolutely fabulous event and we are so pleased to be able to arrange a return visit. Everyone who came was thoroughly impressed by the performers and promised to come again this year. As hoped, theatre has become a real highlight in our events calendar. Bookings are going really well, but we still have room for more.”
Audience members bring their own seats or picnic rugs and picnics if they wish. Food, drinks and ice creams will also be available to buy. The performance will take place, come rain or hopefully shine and starts at 7.30pm. The performance area will be open from 6.30pm if people want to come early, find a seating spot and have a picnic. The performance area is equal distances from parking on Lightwoods Hill or off Abbey Road, but people with mobility problems or a large picnic to carry will find the journey more level from Abbey Road.
