Heartbreak Productions is offering twice the theatrical fun this week with two different shows at Borde Hill Gardens, Haywards Heath.
Pride & Prejudice comes to the venue on Friday, August 8 (7.30pm), while Peter Pan and the Lost Boys will be performed on Saturday, August 9 (6.30pm).
As witty, lively and engaging as its protagonist Elizabeth Bennet, Heartbreak Production’s version of Pride & Prejudice is an interactive adaptation of a timeless tale of five sisters in search of love and happiness.
Among the obstacles of sibling rivalry, social position and complex etiquette; mischief and marriage ensue.
Audiences are invited into the world of the Bennet sisters by members of the Association of Higher Etiquette and Manners who aim to educate people about the manners and politesse of 1813 Regency Britain.
Incorporating music and dance, this production aims to sweep audiences into the opulent world of society balls and amorous love affairs.
People can dance with Mr Darcy, converse with the ladies of society and immerse themselves in all the warmth and humour of Jane Austen’s England.
Peter Pan and the Lost Boys offers a modern interpretation of JM Barrie’s classic tale.
The show starts with the boys staging a protest in an attempt to save their local skate park from government cuts.
As the night approaches they drift off into a dreamlike Neverland and are propelled into a world of excitement and adventure.
Intrigued and excited by an enigmatic boy who needs the support of a gang, the group rally round to join Peter Pan’s legendary crusade.
Embellished with innovative performance style, humour, music and a modern twist, this production offers a version of Peter Pan that audiences have never seen before.
