Pride and Prejudice Revisited

A performance by Adrian Lukis and Susannah Fullerton

Fans of Jane Austen, rejoice! Adrian Lukis, who played George Wickham in the award-winning 1995 BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, along with literary historian and author Susannah Fullerton, will present a reflection on the fascination with this most timeless work.

The audience will be taken back to the Regency world of Jane Austen, as Adrian and Susannah act out some of the most engaging and popular scenes; with Darcy, Elizabeth, Mr Collins, and the Bennets all making an appearance alongside, of course, the charming and unreliable Mr Wickham!
