Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley - A Costumed Staged Reading

"The comic play Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley is a gift for Jane Austen fans." —The Washington Post

"...an unstuffy, highly entertaining and warm-spirited work, the kind of thing multiple generations can enjoy together."—Chicago Tribune

This holiday season, join us for a COSTUMED STAGED READING of this delightful play that revisits your favorite Pride and Prejudice characters as they gather for the holidays. The ever-dependable Mary Bennet is growing tired of her role as dutiful middle sister in the face of her siblings' romantic escapades. When the family gathers for Christmas at Pemberley, an unexpected guest sparks Mary's hopes for independence, an intellectual match, and possibly even love. But, is it meant to be?

Tickets are General Admission: Adult $22/Student $12. Note: A $4 service charge is added for online and phone sales.
