 “Hamill…has a gift for condensing three-volume novels into galloping two-act plays. Her screwball PRIDE AND PREJUDICE…is as frolicsome as her earlier efforts. It hasn’t met a rib it can’t tickle.” — New York Times

“The ever-ingenious Hamill has given us something completely and delightfully different, a smallish-cast period-dress PRIDE AND PREJUDICE…adapted with fizzy, festive freedom, Hamill’s [PRIDE AND PREJUDICE] is full of Bringing Up Baby-style slapstick and the kind of barely controlled chaos that you’d expect to see in a five-door Feydeau farce…” — The Wall Street Journal

“…a laugh-out-loud adaptation… Hamill…give[s] Austen’s novel a deliciously antic sensibility…This PRIDE AND PREJUDICE has comedy at its heart, but regarding the treatment of women, it shows us enough unsettling similarities between the 18th century and now to make us pause thoughtfully between laughs.” — TheaterMania.com

“Hamill’s PRIDE AND PREJUDICE has fun and charm to spare…[it] is full of high spirits and genuine mirth…Hamill excels…as a condenser of the story and a conveyer of fun. She cleverly squeezes Austen’s wide-ranging drawing-room comedy into the bodies of eight actors, almost all doubling to delightful and even moving effect.” — New York Magazine
