Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley
Old Academy Players
3544 Indian Queen Ln, Philadelphia, PA 19129, USA
A sequel to Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice set two years after the novel ends, Miss Bennet continues the story, only this time with bookish middle sister Mary as its unlikely heroine. Mary is growing tired of her role as the dutiful middle sister in the face of her siblings’ romantic escapades. When the family gathers for Christmas at Pemberley, an unexpected guest sparks Mary’s hopes for independence, an intellectual match, and possibly even love.
For those attending performances at Old Academy Players, the wearing of masks while in the building is encouraged but optional.
