Pride and Prejudice

Pride and Prejudice

I am absolutely over the moon to announce that I’ve been cast as Lizzy Bennet in Illyria’s UK tour of Pride and Prejudice.

I am so excited to be working with Illyria. They perform family-friendly ensemble shows, featuring HUGE performances and lots of audience interaction. I saw their Robin Hood a good ten years ago, and have been embarrassingly keen to work with them ever since, so this is all a little bit wonderful.

And in a fortnight I’ll be off! Three weeks rehearsing right by the sea in Cornwall, where I need to meet my Mr Darcy and the rest of the cast, memorise my lines and (gulp) dance moves, see if I can parallel park in a van, and learn to very quickly build and dismantle a steeldeck stage in the pouring rain. Then a three-month tour to some incredible places, including Lincoln Castle, Westminster Abbey, Alexandra Palace, and a two week residency at the Minack.

More information and a full list of tour dates can be found here:

I really hope to see lots of you there!


Yeah, she's got a pretty smile too.
