Actress Hayley Mills narrates the story of Pride and Prejudice in the words of Jane Austen. Created specially to honour the bicentenary of Austen’s death, this adaptation promises to be an unusually intimate performance of the beloved author’s most famous work, one of the most popular novels of all time.
The enduring story of the romance between Elizabeth Bennett and Mr Darcy will be read by Hayley Mills of Juliet Stevenson (depending on availability) in a drawing room setting, in much the same way that Jane would have read the story aloud to the Austen family and their closest friends.
Weaving around those words will be Carl Davis’ magical score from the much loved BBC drama series of the 1990s. The music, specially adapted by Mr Davis will be performed by two of the UK’s most sought after musicians: the pianist Ashley Wass and vilonist Matthew Trusler. The book has been abridged by novelist and Austen biographer Gil Hornby.
