below is a list of Jane Caplow's plays - click on a Play Title for more information



the story revolves around a community theatre group's staging of Jane austen's Pride and Prejudice. the adaptation - more aberration if truth be told - has been created by over-imaginative amateur, emily, whose ever-changing concepts for this classic include such lunacy as resetting scenes on pirate ships and giving Darcy a Flashdance routine with jazz hands. there is no controlling her, largely because she is sleeping with the director. He, Dominic, in turn hasn't got a clue and his pretensions are many; in one number he says, "I am not encumbered by trivialities like character and text" which just about says it all when it comes to describing his technique. His arty-farty weak-willed approach throws a further burden on overworked and put-upon Stage Manager, Sam, already dealing with the fallout from the actors' competitive egos and conflicting agendas.
