One man to perform Pride & Prejudice in Wells

New production runs June 29-30 at Wells’ Sunset Theatre

Sunset Theatre in Wells B.C. brings One Man Pride & Prejudice to audiences June 29 and 30.

Actor Charles Ross, who co-wrote the play with Lisa Hebden, will perform the play, produced by Chick for Supper Productions and directed by Danette Boucher.

Ross is no stranger to one-man productions, having condensed all the action of Star Wars, Lord of the Rings and The Dark Knight into what critics describe as “wildly antic” solo plays in the past, on a bare stage with no props.

When asked why he chose to forgo his usual fantasy fodder for the classic Pride & Prejudice, Ross says: “I love the story, and I love the miniseries from 1995 done by the BBC.

“It’s timeless in the sense that oftentimes love comes out of this adversarial and continual rolling mat of misunderstanding between people…”

Ross has performed for sold-out crowds, and has made television appearances on NBC’s Late Night with Conan O’Brien and CBS’ Late Late Show.

Tickets for the show are available at or at the door. Sunset Theatre is located at 2357 Pooley Street, Wells, B.C.

Call 1-250-994-3400 for more information.
