"Pride and Prejudice" at Theatre Memphis Offers A Little of Both 

Theatre Memphis' current interpretation of Jane Austen's seminal romance novel Pride and Prejudice exceeds three hours. That may be the most useful piece of information I can offer, because if devoting the best eighth of your day to a barrage of class- and gender-conscious barbs traded with restraint in a variety of picturesque settings sounds at all like a little slice of heaven, then the play will probably be a delightful experience. If it sounds like a hellish torture ingeniously conceived by your worst enemies, it's probably that too. Either way, the acting ranges from adequate to excellent, and it's really something to look at.
