Jen Taylor first read Pride and Prejudice when she was eight years old, and she couldn’t fathom why Elizabeth Bennet would choose the haughty Darcy over the kind, charming Wickham. In any case, she was an immediate Austen fan and, thankfully, her discernment developed with age. Jen is honored to help bring Austen’s novels to life with Book-It Repertory Theatre. In addition to Sense and Sensibility she co-adapted Persuasion, and has thrice played the role of Elizabeth Bennet in Book-It’s Pride and Prejudice. Jen is also an accomplished actor, having performed at major theatres across the Northwest, and works extensively as a voice actor in radio, television, audiobooks and video games.
