Mrs Bennet has five daughters. The problem is: they are all unmarried. Thanks to an inheritance system devised by wise men, the only way to safeguard the existence of the family is for one of the daughters to marry a man of means. Enter Charles Bingley: young, rich, handsome – and single. And it is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, MUST be in want of a wife. So, to arms! For matrimony’s sake the Bennet daughters are fully up to riding a flamingo through the storm of the century. And luck seems to be with them, as long as Mary doesn’t start singing. Elizabeth is alone among the daughters in pooh-poohing all this, especially the strange Mr. Darcy, whom she dislikes from the outset. But in the end, love wins the day. How could it be otherwise?
Jane Austen’s famous novel as a crazy, music-laced pop comedy narrated in a tongue-in-cheek way by five women sharing a total of eighteen roles.

Press reviews
Nürnberger Nachrichten

„Mit Respekt für die historische Vorlage hat die schottische Schauspielerin, Musikerin und Schriftstellerin Isobel McArthur den berühmten Roman vom Zuckerguss befreit, das Stück als ironisch-schrille Pop-Revue zwischen Camp-Kult, Karaoke-Bar und TV-Seifenoper neu erfunden. (...) Christian Brey legt eine genüsslich-überdrehte Tür-auf-Tür-zu-Komödie auf die Bretter und kann sich dabei voll auf sein beschwingtes Ensemble verlassen: Fünf bestens aufgelegte Schauspielerinnen (Julia Bartolome, Annette Büschelberger, Anna Klimovitskaya, Lisa Mies und Estelle Schmidlin) wuppen im fliegenden Wechsel 18 Figuren.“

Stefan Gnad, Nürnberger Nachrichten

Bayerische Staatszeitung

„Anna Klimovitskaya, Lisa Mies, Estelle Schmidlin, unübertrefflich aber Julia Bartolome und Annette Büschelberger liefern ein denkbar virtuoses Wechselspiel in allen möglichen Diversitäten ab. (...) Christian Brey (...) hat das Publikum voll und ganz auf seiner Seite. Die Schauspielerinnen bersten in ihren Laura-Ashley-Kleidchen vor Lust und Laune für jeden Running Gag.“

Uwe Mitsching, Bayerische Staatszeitung
