Join us as we bring Jane Austen's beloved 1813 novel to life in this fun and fast-paced adaptation by Jon Jory. Finding a husband is not a priority for the independent-minded Elizabeth Bennet, but with a match-making mother, four unmarried sisters and several unsuitable suitors, it's hard for her to escape the subject. When Elizabeth meets the handsome but enigmatic Mr. Darcy, she is determined not to let her emotions rule over her good sense. However, in a society where snubs and deceit are commonplace, is it possible for Elizabeth and Darcy to look beyond his pride and her prejudice to make the best match of all?

Quilters is the story of a pioneer woman and her six daughters. It blends a series of interrelated scenes into a rich mosaic which captures the sweep and beauty, the terror and joy, the harsh challenge and abiding rewards of frontier life. Illuminating stories contained in various patches or "blocks" with music, dance and drama, depict the lot of women on the frontier: girlhood, marriage, childbirth, spinsterhood, twisters, fire, illness and death. But, with this, there is also love, warmth, rich and lively humor and the moving spectacle of simple human dignity and steadfastness in the face of adversity.
