A theatrical version of Pride and Prejudice, a classic work of British novelist Jane Austen, will be staged at the Beijing Poly Theater from Dec. 10 to 12.

The play, adapted from the renowned 1813 romantic novel, tells the story of Mr. and Mrs. Bennet, their five daughters, and the various romantic adventures at their Hertfordshire residence of Longbourn, reports UNB.

Directed by acclaimed director Philip Godawa, the play will be presented by Chinese actors and actresses in oral Chinese of old times to correspond to the 19th-century England where the novel was set, according to the play's production team.

The team said it is also planning to produce a musical version of Pride and Prejudice.
