Charlotte Lucas is a two-act romantic-comedy adaptation of Pride & Prejudice with a contemporary rock/pop score, juxtaposed against the 19th century period setting and dialogue. This is a retelling with a modern (sense &) sensibility - this piece was made to create an inclusive space for queer people, people of color, and people of all body sizes in the beloved world of period romance! Created by Jane Austen fans for both longtime Pride and Prejudice fans and newcomers alike!
Flexible cast size from 9 to 15+.
Running time of 130 mins.
