MISS BENNET: CHRISTMAS AT PEMBERLEY Begins Nov 13 At Milwaukee Rep
Milwaukee Repertory Theater presents Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley, a contemporary twist based on a beloved classic in the Quadracci Powerhouse November 13 - December 16, 2018.
Written by 2017's most produced playwright in America Lauren Gunderson and Margot Melcon, this clever and charming sequel to Jane Austen's masterwork will delight Austen aficionados and newcomers alike. Favorite Pride and Prejudice characters gather at Pemberley, and an unexpected guest sparks Mary's hopes for independence and the chance to be the heroine of her own story. This romantic comedy about the bookish and oft-forgotten middle child of the Bennet family is told with exceptional modern wit and dazzling period style.
