A fun new take on the original rom-com, Pride & Prejudice.

Men, money and microphones will be fought over in this irreverent, all-female adaptation of Jane Austen's unrivalled literary classic.

An adaptation like no other, drawing on over two-hundred years of romantic pop history, this is Blood of the Young's unique take on the beloved novel. It's party time for Elizabeth, Darcy, Jane and Bingley. Let the ruthless match-making begin.
