I have no intention of dancing at the ball. I would much rather spend my time with a book.
– Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
EXXIIT Productions presented a dynamic run of Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen this past November. The romance was directed by Stuart Aikins and adapted for the stage by Janet Munsil. As the awkward and unappreciated middle child, CJ McGillivray was passionately engaged in her character exploration of Mary Bennet.
“The relationship between the five sisters was nicely brought out,” stated local theatre critic Gillian Lockitch in a recent publication on [Re]View from the House. Lockitch had some thoughtful comments and critique of the production, including praise for CJ in her portrayal of Mary Bennet. She elaborates, saying “CJ McGillivray managed to evoke a sense of both pity and frustration for poor Mary.” For the complete review by Gillian Lockitch, check out [Re]View from the House.
