Pride and Prejudice by Dorothy Lees-Blakey
The fascinating early nineteenth century world of Jane Austen springs vividly to life in this lilting romantic musical comedy, retelling the delightful story of Mrs. Bennet's determined efforts to marry off her five daughters, centering especially on lively, independent Elizabeth's seemingly impossible romance with the proud uncommunicative Mr. Darcy, and how they finally overcome their pride and their prejudice against each other.
