Pride and Prejudice

Directed by Brian Molloy
Performed in dlr Mill Theatre, Dundrum, Tuesday 21 to Saturday 25 February 2017

Stage adaptation of Jane Austen's novel brought to the dlr Mill Theatre.

Pride and Prejudice


In a revision of Mary Keith Medbery's adaptation by Brian Molloy, Balally Players brought Jane Austen’s 'Pride and Prejudice' to the main stage of the dlr Mill Theatre in February 2017. It is one of the most beloved works in literature and this production of the lively stage adaptation featured all the sparkling wit and romance of the great novel.

First published in 1813. 'Pride and Prejudice' follows the main character, Elizabeth Bennet, as she deals with the challenges of manners, upbringing, morality, education and marriage that were serious issues in the society of the landed gentry in Regency England. Country gentleman, Mr Bennet, lives in Longbourn with his wife and five daughters, the second of whom is Elizabeth.

The novel, on which this stage adaptation is based, is set in England in the early 19th century and tells the story of Mr and Mrs Bennet's five unmarried daughters after two gentlemen have moved into their neighbourhood: the rich and eligible Mr Bingley, and his status-conscious friend, the even richer and more eligible Mr Darcy. While Bingley takes an immediate liking to the eldest Bennet daughter, Jane, Darcy is disdainful of local society and repeatedly clashes with the Bennets' lively second daughter, Elizabeth.

Dancing in Pride and Prejudice

A large talented ensemble cast from Balally Players brought this lavish, witty and romantic drama to the stage featuring some of the best loved Austen characters in a fine period setting with costumes to match and graced by a dance or two!
