About

OCT. 13 - NOV. 10, 2018
Directed by ELEANOR HOLDRIDGE

Middle sister Mary finally takes center stage in this charming and clever sequel to Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. While comforted by the company of books and her piano, Mary has grown tired of her role as the dutiful daughter and dreams of forging a new path. When the Bennets gather at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Darcy for the holidays, an unexpected encounter brings about the possibility of an intellectual match and maybe even love for Mary. This enchanting romantic comedy promises to captivate long-time fans of Jane Austen and newcomers alike.

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


ADVISORY: Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley is suitable for audiences ages 10 and older. Written in the spirit of Jane Austen, this romantic comedy features adults engaging in respectful relationships, mild gossip and a few chaste kisses.

RUNNING TIME: The show runs approximately 2 hours and 14 minutes, including one intermission.
