West End Show To Debut At Sea On Queen Anne!

West End Show To Debut At Sea On Queen Anne!

Olivier award-winning West End comedy, Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of), will be performed at sea for the very first time, onboard sparkling new ship Queen Anne!

The hilarious retelling of the famous Jane Austen novel, hailed on land by critics, is set to entertain Cunard guests during Queen Anne’s first British Isles voyage.

“Guests on board Queen Anne coming to see Pride & Prejudice* (*sort of) can expect a theatre show that is deeply affectionate towards the iconic Jane Austen original, with a few new elements thrown in to persuade even the biggest sceptic of ‘period drama’ to start swooning at Mr. Darcy.

Our version of the original rom-com is Pride & Prejudice, but told by the servants – with karaoke! It is a big-hearted, dynamic ensemble piece where those who normally just serve the tea are suddenly playing every part.”

Isobel McArthur, Show Creator

Departing on 24th May 2024, the two-week cruising spectacular travels from the historic port of Southampton to intriguing destinations, including Belfast, Isle of Skye, Kirkwall and Cobh. Guests onboard the cruise will also be a part of the ship’s official naming ceremony, taking place in Cunard’s spiritual home of Liverpool. 

“We always strive to surprise and delight guests with unique and enriching experiences that can only be experienced on a Cunard ship. We are therefore excited to be teaming up with the incredible David Pugh for the at-sea premiere of Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of), which is one of the most acclaimed West End productions of recent times. I truly believe we are redefining luxury entertainment at sea with Queen Anne.”

Katie McAlister, President of Cunard

Alongside Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of), guests onboard Queen Anne can indulge in a wide variety of excellent onboard entertainment – from cabaret performances in the Bright Lights Society show bar to alfresco film screenings, handpicked by the British Film Institute, in the Pavillion.
