Kate Hamill is a Janeite—a devotee and enthusiastic admirer of Jane Austen. The playwright and actress is committed to adapting all seven of Austen's novels. Her latest adaption of the classic love story Pride and Prejudice, in which Hamill plays Lizzy Bennet, acting alongside her real-life partner Jason O'Connell (Mr. Darcy), is being performed at the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival at Boscobel in Garrison. While Hamill has used her sense of humor to embellish characteristics of the Bennets, her adaptation honors Austen's work. Writing in the Wall Street Journal, Terry Teachout gushed about the show: "The ever-ingenious Ms. Hamill has given us something completely and delightfully different, a smallish-cast period-dress 'Pride and Prejudice' that she's done over in the revved-up manner of a Hollywood screwball comedy." "Pride and Prejudice" is being staged in repertory at the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival at Boscobel in Garrison through September 4. (845) 265-9575; Hvshakespeare.org.
