Roles:
Arthur de Bourgh – 25 A Studious, unsociable only child who has never been around women or large families. He is a loner who prefers books to people. He has recently inherited a large estate and has no idea what to do next.
Fitzwilliam Darcy – 30 A loving, generous, and smart (if slightly stiff) husband. He is quiet and vigilant and thus sees what others often miss. He knows what being lovelorn is like.
Jane Bingley – married to Mr. Bingley. She is seven months pregnant with her first child and is sweet and optimistic as ever. The kindest heart in the house.
Charles Bingley – Gracious, happy, and ever focused on the love of his life, Jane. A good friend and always ready with a smile.
Lydia Wichham – Flirtatious, youthful, self-centered. Her marriage to Mr. Wickham is a sham but she will not admit this. She is the person you want to have at your party: energetic, engaging, unstoppable
Anne de Bough – Only daughter of the late Lady Catherine de Bourgh. Lived in her mother’s very large shadow, never having to ask for anything or speak for herself her entire life. Judgmental and impatient, just like her mother.

Opening: 4/27/19
Closing: 5/19/19
Roles:
Jessie – married to a North Shore native; recently relocated to Port (from Manhattan) to raise her family. Educated, articulate, lovely, warm. From the Midwest and has the Midwestern ready-smile. Beloved by every teacher she’s ever had. Always gives the perfect toast, always organized the group gift. But in private, Jessie bends towards anxiety. She doesn’t like an empty day on calendar, or being alone. Works 90-hour weeks in the city as a corporate lawyer- or did until Allie was born. Now she’s in yoga pants
Mitchell - Adrienne's husband, works in investment capital. A math nerd who is amazing with numbers, but notpeople. Serious, shrewd, sensitive. The kid who ate lunch in the library because he was so shy. Mitchell grew up in a tough house in a tough part of Utica and scholar-shipped his way to where he is now, so grades, status, and success are his currency. But becoming a father has changed him. He makes goofy faces now. He stares out windows during meetings. His sentences end in question marks.
Adrienne - Mitchell's wife. Elegant, powerful, aloof, and slightly rock n roll. Has eyes that are cat-like and assessing. The kind of woman you see climbing out of a dark sedan at JFK who you just know is going somewhere cool. Adrienne grew up on Central Park West, attended posh boarding schools, studied art abroad, and could give you the best-ever guided tour of MoMA. She has never signed an e-mail with an x or an o, but she is loyal and ferocious in both business and life. A successful jewelry designer.
