Pride and Prejudice:  The Movie

FARCE. Sammy Samosa, a director of low-budget action films, has been ordered by studio brass to make a quality film. Desperate to save his job, Sammy selects a screenplay of Jane Austen’s classic novel "Pride and Prejudice" but soon discovers there is no budget for a set, costumes, or film editing, and there’s just one crew member to do the sound, lights, and camera work. To save money and time, Sammy ends up with a cast of “actors” including an overzealous Realtor, a hippie, a biker, a geek, a Goth, a fast-food worker, a bossy first-grade teacher, a wannabe Shakespearean actress, and a former cheerleader. Then to make matters worse, Sammy finds out he has just three days to shoot the entire movie, so he orders the cast to toss out the script and improvise the rest of the movie! This play will delight your audience with its host of hilarious characters.
