     The University of Lynchburg theatre department will present “Pride and Prejudice: Not your ordinary Jane Austen!” on Feb. 20, 21, and 22 at 7:30 p.m., and on Feb. 23 at 2 p.m. in the Dillard Theatre. 

     According to Jeff Wittman, professor and chair of theatre, “Our concept for the play (acting, dance and design) is that we build our courage for the possibility of love. We are honoring what we love about Jane Austen’s novel but looking for new and surprising things throughout the play. We are emphasizing the comedy and absurdity in the play for a roller coaster ride of fun. As characters and as an audience, we also see how our own dreams, hopes, and fears can run up against societal restrictions.”
