In its 34th season, Round House Theatre transports adored literary works from the page to the stage with a fully packed schedule of adaptations and contemporary works. This December, the company ferries guests back to 19th century England during its rendition of Jane Austen’s classic novel Pride and Prejudice. Hailed as “an extravagant and gorgeous production filled with wonderful performances” by Maryland Theatre Guide in a four-star review, the play submerges viewers into the lives of Mr. and Mrs. Bennet and their five daughters, who want desperately to fall in love and find suitable partners to serve as wickets during games of human croquet. The arrival of two young men in the Bennets’ neighborhood, however, sends the spinsters whirling into a state of upheaval, as prying acquaintances, dastardly relatives, and ill-timed text messages garnish the enchanting saga with doses of humor.
Round House Theatre
When it was founded in 1970, the theatre company Street ’70 didn’t have a home, instead serving as a nomadic outreach program for schools and community spaces. It would be seven years before they’d find their own space in the Round House Theatre, which would eventually become the company’s moniker. Since those early days, the ensemble has produced more than 200 performances per year out of their home theater in Bethesda and a black box theater in Silver Springs. Round House Theatre also spreads the drama bug through classes, workshops, and not washing their hands after handling freshly penned manuscripts.
