‘Eric’ takes on a classic this Christmas as the gang give Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice a 60s shaped makeover from Monday 27 November to Saturday 9 December at the New Vic.
This festive season, David Graham Productions are back on stage with a musical comedy based on one of the most romantic novels of all time. Mrs Bennett is more concerned than ever about marrying off her five daughters. Her husband, stricken with a stomach bug which keeps him out of her way for prolonged periods, holds many a conversation with his wife from the safety of the bathroom and agrees to a Grand Christmas Ball to which Mrs Bennett intends to invite every eligible male in the area, including a newcomer, Eric Arcy, who no-one has yet seen. He sounds the ideal match for her daughter, Elizabeth – but this is Eric!
Complicated relationships and the interference of Arcy’s two friends, Mr Bingley and Mr Bradford, make matters worse as the guest list turns out to be a little stranger than Mrs Bennett had first imagined.
It’s a truth universally acknowledged that Eric’s Pride and Prejudice – filled with sensational 60s songs, dancing, laughter, and fun – is the very best way to kick start your festive season. With a big cast, plenty of surprises and some special guests, join ‘Eric’ for Christmas this year!
Eric’s Pride and Prejudice takes to the stage at the New Vic from Monday 27 November to Saturday 9 December 2023. Tickets are on sale now, priced from £23.00-£29.50. For more information and to book call the Box Office on 01782 717962 or visit newvictheatre.org.uk.
