Sorry, This Trip has Already Occurred
Merry Christmas from Mr. and Mrs. Darcy of Pemberley Estate!
In this witty sequel to Pride and Prejudice, bookish middle-sister Mary pounds her pianoforte alone until a curious visitor drops hints of being her intellectual match. Seizing the opportunity to be the heroine of her own story, Mary pursues her equal. This funny, smart and romantic comedy makes for a most stylish holiday outing. This hit production follows the Pride and Prejudice characters as they gather at Pemberley, the distinguished home of Mr. and Mrs. Darcy. Set two years after the end of Jane Austen's famous novel, character Mary Bennet grows tired of her role as the innocent sister in the face of her siblings' whirlwind romances. When the family gathers for Christmas at Pemberley, an unexpected guest sparks Mary's hopes for romance.
Playwrights Margot Melcon and Lauren Gunderson wrote this imagined sequel and "wanted to create a holiday story for everyone that explores the complexities of family and love. It had to be funny, moving, romantic and smart. It had to be something Jane Austen would approve of," says Gunderson.
