Quite pleasant rendition

The quality of the recording increases with episodes. Several of the actors are excellent a pleasure to listen to. A couple have stilted choppy speech, presumably due to the local accents’ cadence.

Big Jane Austen fan

I read all the books, seen all the movies but this podcast really give the story some life. I really enjoyed it, can 't wait for another Jane Austen story from you guys. Much love from the Netherlands.

Stellar Rendition

What pleasure to listen to and so engaging!! It was hard to stop and heart wrenching when it ended. Cannot wait for more!

Loved it! Thank you so much!

I can’t begin to tell you how much pleasure listening to your podcast has given me. Such a quality production. (So is the coffee mug!) Please do more Jane Austen !!!

Most delightful escapist podcast

This podcast happened at the perfect time for me and so many others. During lockdowns, chaos, reckonings, I just needed a way to escape. This was so well done, so well edited and acted, and the hilarious sign-offs were everything! Thank you for bringing so much Austen joy!


This theater group did an amazing job reading this story. They really bring the characters to life and let Jane Austen's wit shine through.

Timeless Classic

I had been putting off starting this podcast, for fear of falling down a rabbit hole. It was my pleasure to begin when I started a recent road trip. I devoured the then available 28 episodes over the 4 days I spent driving! I have just finished the final episode and have very strong and mixed emotions. Well done to all the cast and crew at BNT who were able to bring this stunning adaption of Pride and Prejudice to life via podcast.

Second encounter with Ballarat

First was the excellent Dr. Blake mystery series. This production is even better. I just wish I could see it. Thanks to the whole company for all of your efforts. Can’t wait for your next production.

Love Love Love!

The BEST podcast! I am enjoying the whole cast and the lady at the end “butchering” The Thomas the train theme song in her “ darkest hour” is a delight!

Ballarat Talent!

What a treat to listen to this Ballarat production. Loved that people all over the world have been able to listen to the podcast. It's been a real comfort during the tough times of 2020. Well done to cast and production team!!

Love it!

Love this podcast, I listen to it on repeat. Sand can't wait till it's finally all published. The narrating is brilliant. It took me a few chapters you get into it as the first chapter was a little boring but it gets better as you go along.

Top Notch

I’ve enjoyed listening to this theatre’s rendition of Pride and Prejudice. This is a top notch performance! I’m waiting for the next season and hope that I don’t have to wait long!!

Absolutely Brillant

I absolutely love this podcast. They’ve brilliantly balanced having a narrator reading the story with actors reciting the lines. I wish every audiobook was just like this! I hope the show continues after P&P with maybe their rendition of another Jane Austen story.


I am loving this and wait with baited breathe for the next installment. Thank you for lifting my spirits during this crazy time. The acting is amazing and I see the show play out in my minds eye as I listen. Thank you for lifting my spirits! Well done, well done, bravo!!

Love love love it

It is so fun to listen to this dramatization. The actors really bring the story to life, and we were already in a Jane Austen novel, so I didn’t think it could be even better! The actor who plays Elizabeth nails it- fantastic performance.

Charming AF!

I am not exaggerating when I say that this lovely podcast has offered me a renewed appreciation for Pride and Prejudice. Upon starting it, I found myself opening the book again, and rewatching all iterations of the film. Thank you very much, Ballarat National Theatre and the ladies who make this podcast possible!

So much fun!

Really enjoying “reading” the book again with this wonderful group of performers. Delightful!

Sweet and Enthusiastic

I was excited to find this podcast! All the actors are so enthusiastic about the story, which is so important for Austen’s work. Thank you for doing this! ✨✨✨
