When: Wednesdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through May 27 2017
Pride and Prejudice remains immensely popular more than 200 years after its release thanks to Jane Austen's ability to translate to the page the love, longing and hasty decision-making of young women. For the final production of Slightly Askew Theatre Ensemble's tenth season, the company presents First Impressions, an interesting take on Austen's novel. Inspired by Elizabeth Bennet's reliance on first impressions, Ellie Schwetye and Rachel Tibbetts polled people via social media about their first impressions of the novel. These gathered recollections are woven into the story as a way of celebrating the novel's perpetual pull on readers' hearts and minds. First Impressions is presented at 8 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday (May 17 to 27) at the Chapel (6238 Alexander Drive; www.slightlyoff.org). Tickets are $15 to $20.
