Pride & Prejudice – Character Breakdown:
- ACTOR 1
JANE. The eldest and most beautiful Bennet daughter. Kind, idealistic, diffident.
MISS DE BOURGH. Lady Catherine’s daughter; a gremlin. Probably allergic to sun. Underneath all her veils, she may be covered in scales.
- ACTOR 2
LIZZY. Clever, spirited; can be sharp-tongued. Gets flustered, which makes her klutzy. Prides herself on good judgment. Very very scared of marriage after absorbing the lessons of her parents’ marriage.
- ACTOR 3
LYDIA. The youngest Bennet. Lively, prone to imitating others and eavesdropping.
LADY CATHERINE. Patrician Caesar-meets-drill sergeant.
- ACTOR 4
MR. DARCY. One of the richest men in England. Too proper for his own good; awkward in most social contexts. Prides himself on self-control and good judgment.
- ACTOR 5
MR. COLLINS. A pedantic, obtuse man. Mansplainer. Rector to Lady Catherine.
WICKHAM. An unfairly handsome and charming gentleman. Probably a sociopath.
MISS BINGLEY. A very rich, very beautiful young woman. Fancies herself witty.
- ACTOR 6
MR. BINGLEY. Loves the world and the world loves him. Mr. Darcy’s particular friend. Almost literally a dog.
MARY. The third Bennet girl. Violent and dark undertones; prone to pedanticism and sulking. A dark goth Bronte character trapped in an Austen world.
- ACTOR 7
CHARLOTTE LUCAS. Same age as Lizzy. A practical girl with a good sense of humor.
MR. BENNET. The patriarch of the Bennet family. Finds amusement in absurdity; often looks for respectable escape from the chaos of his family life. Can be somewhat apathetic; probably a bit depressed, under everything. Disappointed in marriage.
- ACTOR 8
MRS. BENNET. The matriarch of the Bennet family. Mostly a silly woman, of mean understanding and variable temper. Hypochondriac; when she’s upset, she fancies that she’s dying. The business of her life is to get her daughters married.
