    A really lovely adaptation of Pride and Prejudice--I've been craving a more racially and economically aware adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, and Starbard serves that up quite masterfully. The humor's there, the politics are there, and the Raven's presence theatricalizes the whole story quite effectively.

    A rollicking take on Pride and Prejudice set in Alaska. It delves deeply into Native Alaskan culture and draws strongly from both ancient myths and modern challenges. With a largely female cast, this would be a great piece for a middle or high school.
