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.

Gillian Holroyd is one of the few modern people who can actually cast spells and perform feats of supernaturalism. She casts a spell over an unattached publisher, Shepherd Henderson, partly to keep him away from a rival and partly because she is attracted to him. He falls head over heels in love with her at once and wants to marry her. But witches, unfortunately, cannot fall in love, and this minute imperfection leads into a hilarious number of difficulties.
