CHARACTER SYNOPSIS:

Mr. Bennet: The patriarch of the Bennet family, Mr. Bennet is a gentleman of modest income with five unmarried daughters. He has a sarcastic, cynical sense of humor that he uses to purposefully irritate his wife. Though he loves his daughters, he often fails as a parent, preferring to withdraw rather than offer help.

 

Mrs. Bennet: Mr. Bennet’s wife, Mrs. Bennet is a foolish, noisy woman whose only goal is to see her daughters well married. Because of her low breeding and often unbecoming behavior, she often repels the very suitors whom she tries to attract for her daughters.

 

Miss Jane Bennet: The eldest and most beautiful Bennet sister, Jane is more reserved and gentler than Elizabeth. The easy pleasantness with which she and Mr. Bingley interact contrasts starkly with the encounters between Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy.

 

Miss Elizabeth Bennet: The second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bennet, Elizabeth is the most intelligent and sensible of the five Bennet sisters. She is quick-witted, with a tongue that occasionally proves too sharp for her own good, especially as she spars with Mr. Darcy.

 

Miss Mary Bennet: The middle Bennet sister, Mary is bookish and pedantic.

Miss Catherine Bennet: The fourth Bennet sister, Catherine, like Lydia, is girlishly enthralled with the soldiers stationed nearby.

 

Miss Lydia Bennet: The youngest Bennet sister, Lydia is gossipy, immature, and self-involved. Unlike Elizabeth, Lydia flings herself headlong into romance and ends up running off with Mr. Wickham.

 

Mr. Charles Bingley: Darcy’s considerably wealthy best friend, Mr. Bingley is a genial, well-intentioned gentleman, whose easygoing nature contrasts with Darcy’s initially discourteous demeanor. He is blissfully uncaring about class difference.

 

Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy: A wealthy gentleman and the nephew of Lady Catherine de Bourgh,

 

Mr. Darcy is intelligent and honest, but his pride causes him to look down on his social inferiors. Over the course of the play, he tempers his class-consciousness and learns to admire and love Elizabeth for her strong character.

 

Mr. George Wickham: A handsome, fortune-hunting militia officer, Mr. Wickham initially attracts Elizabeth. However, she soon suspects his motives; and he in the end runs off with Lydia.

 

Miss Charlotte Lucas: Daughter of Sir William and Lady Lucas and friend of the Bennet girls, Charlotte marries Mr. Collins after a very quick courtship.

 

Mr. Collins: A pompous clergyman and cousin to the Bennets, Collins stands to inherit the Bennet property. He takes great pains to let everyone know that Lady Catherine de Bourgh serves as his patroness.

 

Miss Caroline Bingley: Mr. Bingley’s snobbish sister, Caroline bears inordinate disdain for the Bennet family’s middle-class background.

Lady Catherine De Bourgh: A rich, bossy noblewoman and aunt to Mr. Darcy, Lady Catherine epitomizes class snobbery, especially in her attempts to order the middle-class Elizabeth away from her well-bred nephew.

 

Anne de Bourgh: Daughter of Lady Catherine de Bourgh.

 

Georgina Darcy: Sister of Mr. Darcy, Georgiana is immensely pretty and just as shy.

 

Lady Lucas: Wife of Sir William Lucas and friend to the Bennets.

Sir William Lucas: An affable knight and friend to the Bennets.

 

Colonel Fitzwilliam: A cousin of Mr. Darcy and nephew of Lady Catherine de Bourgh.

 

Mr. Gardiner: The brother of Mrs. Bennet.

 

Mrs. Gardiner: Mr. Gardiner’s wife

SYNOPSIS:

Set in England during the approximate time of early 1800, five daughters of the Bennet family must be married off! Was ever a mother as put upon as Mrs. Bennet? Jane falls deeply in love with the wealthy Mr. Bingley, and it looks as if a romance is possible between Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. But Mr. Darcy is a very proud young man and he is shocked by mama's vulgar matchmaking! He not only leaves for London, but also manages to take Mr. Bingley with him. Jane is heartbroken. Finally, Mr. Darcy returns to propose to Elizabeth. She promptly refuses and berates him for taking Mr. Bingley away and hurting Jane. The attraction between Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy eventually triumphs over the pride of one and the prejudice of the other.
