Pride and Prejudice is a RomCom set in England in the early 1800s. The play follows five young women at a time when marriage is a success, anything else is a failure, and love is a luxury. Plotting behind them are the mothers desperate to see their daughters well married; and the young men who may, or may not, marry them.
