Six young women will fight about men and money in an all-female adaptation of Pride And Prejudice showing in Bristol.

Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh, Tron Theatre Company and Blood of the Young present Pride And Prejudice (sort of) at the Bristol Old Vic throughout September.

The adaptation is Blood of the Young's version of the beloved novel by literary legend Jane Austen.

Six young female servants find their voice in this irreverent version of the classic tale.

Tired of emptying chamber pots, sweeping ash and being overlooked and undervalued as they tend to their household's every needs, they step out of the shadows and into the limelight.

The show is on at the Bristol Old Vic, in King Street, from Saturday until September 28.

Tickets, priced from £7.50, can be book at or by calling 01179 877877.
