Richard Darbourne LTD Presents The Two Bits Classics Production
Over 200 years after the nation’s favourite novel was published, Two Bit Classics’ adaptation of Pride and Prejudice is “simply the most entertaining and stimulating evening spent in the theatre” (Hexham Courant). Every word that is spoken is Austen’s. Every moment is pure joy.
A highly praised and sparkling interpretation of one of the most loved and romantic stories of all time, this is a must for Austen fans and those looking for a fresh and surprising new piece of theatre. Fast and very funny – this chance to catch the five Bennett sisters and the whole world of Austen brought to life by just two actors is a treat not to be missed.

Brilliant spellbinding and very good acting. Still in my mind,well worth seeing ,well done. .
I consider myself to be a total, self-confessed Austenite, so I was unsure as to how two people could convey Pride and Prejudice. I needn't have worried, this company, despite being only two actors on stage throughout, were a marvel to watch. The script was quick-witted, true to Jane Austen herself, and captured both character and nuance for the whole performance. I can honestly say this was the most driven, creative and inspiring performance of a two-handed production that I have ever seen. Beg, borrow, steal or preferably buy a ticket for this unique and joyful experience - you will not be disappointed.
