Lively performances carry 'Pride and Prejudice' at Patapsco Female Institute
Although Jane Austen lived nearly 200 years after William Shakespeare, they shared a literary sensitivity to the social rituals that make courtship such a trying experience. That's why it isn't much of a stretch for the Chesapeake Shakespeare Company to do a theatrical adaptation of Austen's novel "Pride and Prejudice" at the Patapsco Female Institute Historic Park in Ellicott City.
