Pride and Prejudice
March 16 - April 8, 2017
By Jane Austen; adapted by Vancouver playwright Janet Munsil
Directed by Gisela O’Brien
Producers: Barry Marvel and Bill VanGorder; Stage Manager: Cathy McAuley
“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.” So begins Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen’s witty comedy of manners—one of the most popular novels of all time—that features splendidly civilized sparring between the proud Mr. Darcy and the prejudiced Elizabeth Bennet as they play out their spirited courtship in a series of eighteenth-century drawing-room intrigues. We hope you enjoy this new, Canadian adaptation of the Jane Austen classic.

Playwrights @ TAG is a fun filled non-competitive festival providing members with the chance to experience and enjoy the thrill and agony of writing a script and see it performed for an audience. No prior experience is necessary and no prizes or adjudication will occur.
This will be our third installment of Playwrights @ TAG. Most of the plays presented in this unique event have gone on to perform in other festivals such as The Liverpool International Theatre Festival and The Atlantic Fringe Festival. The purpose of everything we do at Theatre Arts Guild is to have fun. The process of Playwrights @ TAG has become a wonderful experience for everyone involved.
