Enjoy this month's reading of The Wickhams: Christmas at Pemberley, by Lauren Gunderson and Margot Melcon.
In this delightful companion play to Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley, Gunderson and Melcon bring Austen’s beloved characters to the stage for a yuletide sequel to Pride and Prejudice.
While "Miss Bennet" depicted the newly wed Darcys’ Christmas gathering on the ground floor of Pemberley, THE WICKHAMS takes audiences to the downstairs servants’ quarters for that same celebration.
Mrs. Reynolds, a no-nonsense housekeeper; Cassie, an eager new maid; and Brian, a lovesick footman, are bustling with preparations for holiday guests. But their work is interrupted by the midnight arrival of the definitely not-invited Mr. Wickham—Lydia’s rogue of a husband and Mr. Darcy’s sworn enemy.
THE WICKHAMS is a charming holiday tale that explores the confines of class and the generosity of forgiveness.
Note: Dramaturg Jo Holcomb will assign parts.
