Playhouse on Park’s next production is MISS BENNET: CHRISTMAS AT PEMBERLEY by Lauren Gunderson and Margot Melcon.
Directed by Sasha Brätt.
Running at Playhouse on Park in West Hartford from December 1st – 19th.
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 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.
