Austin Playhouse presents Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley
Austin Playhouse presents the premiere of Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley by Lauren Gunderson and Margot Melcon. In this charmingly imagined sequel to Jane Austen’s beloved literary romance Pride and Prejudice, the oft-overlooked, bookish middle sister Mary has come into her own as a confident woman full of curiosity and wit.
When the family reunites for Christmas at Pemberley, Mr. Darcy’s aristocratic but socially bumbling bookworm cousin turns up unexpectedly and sparks Mary’s hopes for independence, an intellectual match, and possibly even love. Obstacles abound, and for the first time, Mary must stand tall and become the heroine of her own story.
