Preview: Pride and Prejudice at Hummingbird Theatre
It’s a classic back-to-school scenario: You get your summer reading list, skim it over, then toss it aside. It’s not until the day before class you remember—you have to read all 432 pages of Pride and Prejudice and write a 500-word essay analyzing its core themes! If you want to avoid the scramble, consider seeing a free production of Jane Austen’s groundbreaking novel, put on by Hummingbird Theatre at Village Green Park. It might even be better than the book … but you should probably read the book, too.
