Festival Theatre's Christmas play! Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley by Lauren Gunderson and Margot Melcon
Playing November 26 - December 18
A charming, witty sequel to Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice set two years after the novel ends, Miss Bennet continues the story, only this time with bookish middle-sister Mary as its unlikely heroine. Mary 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.
"Droll and delicious, MISS BENNET is a charming, confectionary celebration...of Jane Austen's humor, playfulness and wit in a warm-spirited holiday theatrical production." - DCMetroTheaterArts.com
"...a perfectly constructed love story... Given its fizzy comedy, sweet spirit and clean structure, it seems destined to populate future holiday seasons..." - San Francisco Chronicle
"an unstuffy, highly entertaining and warm-spirited work, the kind of thing multiple generations can enjoy together." - Chicago Tribune
