I Have Five Daughters
by Margaret Macnamara
Directed by Pamela WhalanSeason: 3rd January - 14th February 1998
Margaret Macnamara's morning-room comedy, I Have Five Daughters, made from Austen's novel Pride & Prejudice, looks at the dilemma of having five daughters and little money, in an age when the only respectable career for a gently born girl was marriage. Mr. Bennet seems to look on the predicament as comic, but Mrs. Bennet strives with all her might to find husbands, suitable or not, for beautiful Jane, witty Elizabeth, dull Mary, fretful Kitty and bold Lydia. Her manoeuvres provide us with a charming view of an elegant bygone age inhabited by characters very much like people we know today.
