“I had not known you a month before I felt that you were the last man in the world whom I could ever be prevailed on to marry!”
When a host of eligible bachelors descend on the small community of Meryton, hearts are set racing and the tranquil world of the Bennett family is sent into a whirlwind of passions and possibilities. Central to all this excitement is one of the most famous love-stories of all time: the compelling will-they-won’t-they romance of the irrepressible Lizzie Bennet and enigmatic Mr Darcy.
GSC mark the start of their 18th Birthday year with a brand new stage adaptation of Jane Austen's much-loved romantic comedy, directed by the award nominated ABIGAIL PICKARD PRICE.
In Surrey's largest Georgian church, three actors will bring to life a cast brimming with unforgettable characters – from the dry and doting Mr Bennet, the rakish Mr Wickham, to the sycophantic Mr Collin’s and of course the unstoppable Mrs Bennet and her fervent pursuit of husbands for her daughters.
Join us for a gloriously fun and feel-good start to 2024!

"We were greatly surprised by Edward Bridge's company... he made a point of ordering toasted cheese for supper, entirely on my account." Jane Austen, letter 1805
We might not be able to offer you toasted cheese, but why not follow Mr Bridge's example and order yourselves a delicious cheeseboard to savour DURING the show. Cheeseboards include a fabulous Cheddar, Brie and Stilton and come with a tangy onion chutney and crackers. Each board is enough for two persons.
Why not add a bottle of wine to make it extra special... (we're sure Jane would approve).
