A STAGE version of the loved novel Pride and Prejudice is coming to the Athenaeum in Warminster to mark the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen's death.

The production is a traditional take on the well known love story performed by the Athenaeum Limelight Players and will be shown from Thursday November 30 to Saturday 2 December at 7.30 pm.

The script, which has been adapted from the novel, films and tv series has been put together by first time director Heather Durbin.

The costumes in particular are an impressive part of the production, with 42 outfits being made by the head of the wardrobe department Cate Hiscocks with the help of Kathie Johnson and Kayleigh Stratton.

Producer Adela Forestier-Walker said: "People can expect to see classic and true remake of the story with no characters left out.

"We have spared no money in this production, the costumes especially are of the finest materials.

"It is certainly going to be a lavish performance."

Cast members have been enjoying rehearsals, and even the most macho of cast members have fallen in love with the story.

Tickets are available from the Athenaeum box office.
