Pride and Prejudice
Elizabeth Bennet is young, clever and attractive. All the same, she and her four sisters are in dire need of financial security and escape; that is to say, in dire need of perfect husbands. Then the arrival in the neighbourhood of nice Mr Bingley and arrogant Mr Darcy turns all their lives upside down. In the ensuing battle of wits between the plain-speaking Lizzie and the conceited Darcy, will love have a chance to spark? Jane Austen’s most celebrated novel is a brilliantly witty drama of friendship, rivalry and romance.
