Photo Flash: MISS BENNET: CHRISTMAS AT PEMBERLY Comes to Theatrical Outfit This Christmas
This Christmas, Theatrical Outfit proudly stages the Southeast premiere of Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley, a new holiday play by Atlanta native Lauren Gunderson (Silent Sky) and Margot Melcon. Told with modern wit and period style, this effervescent, comedic sequel to one of the most beloved literary romances of all time, Pride and Prejudice, will enchant Jane Austen fans and newcomers alike. Directed by Atlanta actress-director Carolyn Cook, Miss Bennet runs November 30 - December 24 and continues Theatrical Outfit's 2017- 2018 Season of Character. Miss Bennet is sponsored in part by Macy's.
1815. England. This Christmas, cozy up with your favorite Pride and Prejudice characters at Pemberley, the grand estate of newlyweds, Mr. and Mrs. Darcy. Middle daughter Mary Bennet, bookish and often overshadowed by her sisters, blossoms when a curious visitor proves himself an intellectual match, kindred spirit and possibly more. For the first time, Mary must stand tall and become the heroine of her own story.
