classic love-story, under a summer sky at St George’s, Church Street, Balbriggan, 7.30pm on Saturday, 13 July.
Take a step back in time 200 years to meet Elizabeth Bennett and her sisters. Enjoy the emotional gymnastics of their mother and the efforts of various gentlemen who take an interest in the young ladies.  ‘Pride & Prejudice’ was published in 1813, the same year as the building of St George’s began.
