by Isobel McArthur / Jane Austen German translation by Silke Pfeiffer

Jane Austen's most famous novel, "Pride and Prejudice," was published in 1813. The novel tells the love story of Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy, two lovers who, despite numerous obstacles and refusals, eventually find each other.
And today: "There is a small problem here with emotional repression. So, don't be surprised if someone starts singing out of the blue," the audience is gently prepared for the unusual circumstances of life in a small town right at the beginning. But sudden karaoke performances are not the only thing that makes Isobel McArthur's celebrated adaptation of Jane Austen's masterpiece unique and extraordinary. With a highly modern and surprisingly faithful approach, McArthur gives a voice to those who, although indispensable, are often left unmentioned. In a true tour de force, five maids embody not only the sarcastic Elizabeth Bennet and the snobbish Mr. Darcy but almost the entire cast of the novel. In the midst of slapstick, pop songs, and a very old-fashioned love story, a narrative of female self-determination and economic dependence emerges, which doesn't seem so distant after all.

For all individuals aged 14 and above who want to take a new look at a literary classic under the open sky.
