“Mr. Darcy sends you all the love in the world that he can spare from me. You are all to come to Pemberley
at Christmas.” -Lizzy, Chapter 60, Pride and Prejudice
So what will happen when the Bennet’s gather for Christmas at Pemberley. It is now 1815 and is has been 2 years since Lizzy and Jane were happily married at the end of Pride and Prejudice. What sister will be the focus this time – well, Miss Mary Bennet – the bookish, judgemental, mediocre pianist! Oh, what changes have occurred in the last two years for Mary to become the unlikely heroine of this story. Determined to cast off her role as dutiful middle sister, she begins to assert her knew found confidence. When unexpected guests arrive, Mary’s new sense of self is tested by her family and a new friend. The play is described as being “droll and delicious” and it is.
Some familiarity with the story of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen would be helpful when preparing to audition.
