Pride & Prejudice at the ADC

Last night, I saw an excellent performance of Pride and Prejudice given by the Combined Actors of Cambridge at the ADC Theatre.

I hadn't seen it before, nor read the book; the main reason I went on this occasion was that my friend was playing Jane Bennet. I'd decided, for no particular reason, that it was a stuffy period-drama; so was pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be quite the comedy.

Very enjoyable, with particularly fine performances by Hugh Mellor and Rocca Russell as Mr. and Mrs. Bennet; and Catriona Clancy was the star of the show as Elizabeth.

I suspect not, and the lady sat next to me was a little disappointed that they hadn't included the scene where he comes out of a lake with a wet shirt.
