Pride and Prejudice: A Play

Pride and Prejudice: A Play by Mary Keith Medbery Mackaye
By: (1845-1924)

Perhaps a good introduction for someone not ready to tackle the complete novel ~ and for the reader familiar with the work, a laugh can be had at the changes that were made in order to adapt it to the stage
