NEIL JENNINGS PLAYS DARCY IN PRIDE & PREJUDICE
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a married actor must one day want to perform with his wife. Burton and Taylor did it, Branagh & Thompson, Russell & Hawn – and now, thanks to a bit of inspired casting by The Pantaloons, Jennings & Healey.
Yes, Neil Jennings and his wife, actress Jennifer Healey, will be spending the summer as English literature’s iconic couple: Darcy & Elizabeth.
The Pantaloons are known for their anarchic style and exuberant sense of play, incorporating commedia dell’arte, pantomime and stand-up comedy in their work and, by using a real life married couple as the warring lovers, they’re definitely upping the ante on Austen’s sparkling comedy.
