MARY - The third Bennet girl. Bit of a monster; prone to pendanticism and sulking. May double with Bingley. A dark goth Bronte character trapped in an Austen world.

SEEKING A SINGLE ACTOR:
A single actor performs all of the roles in the play. Distinctions between characters are made by changes in the tonal quality and pitch of the actor’s voice, and through his stance, his posture, and his repository of gestures. He glides fluidly from one personality to the next. Often his transformations are accomplished with lightning speed and minimal suggestion – a raised eyebrow, for example, or an unexpected smile.
