On Sunday afternoon 19th July, much lauded Chapterhouse Theatre Company ,  specialists in open air theatre visit Curraghmore to present Pride and Prejudice.  Here is a note from the director Rebecca Gadsby 
The story and the setting suit the stately home environment perfectly and the
story translates well to the open-air stage. Once again, we will study the airs, graces and rules of
courtship of this period to bring you an accurate portrayal of romance in the 19th Century. Add in
your own picnics, warm summer's evening and a few stars and you have the ideal accompaniment for

this beautiful story.” 

The production runs for two hours plus interval with a cast of eight actors. The new tea rooms at Curraghmore will be open prior to the performance.

Pride and Prejudice
Adapted from Jane Austen's novel by Laura Turner.
Take a step back in time with Chapterhouse Theatre Company to meet Elizabeth Bennet, Jane
Austen's most loveable heroine. When Elizabeth meets the rude and abrupt Mr Darcy, she loathes him
at first sight. But is there more to him than meets the eye?
Join family and friends for what promises to be the most splendid evening of the summer as you
