This is a love story. This is a comedy. This is two women playing all the parts. This is the Jane Austen you love with a squeeze of lemon. This is you moving through historic Campbell House with the story. This is you getting caught up, swept away and laughing out loud!

Hallie Burt and Kate Werneburg first presented a site-specific, two-woman adaptation of Pride and Prejudice called Elizabeth – Darcy at historic Campbell House as part of Toronto Fringe 2013. Catching the eye of the public and the critics, this piece received a “NNNN” rating from NOW magazine, garnering mentions from the same publication for Outstanding Ensemble and Outstanding Direction.

This piece will receive its first professional production December 14-29, 2013. Campbell House will once again provide a stunning period backdrop for this classic comedy.
