LOVE. OUT LOUD. There’s so much to love about this sweet romantic comedy that will surely get you into the holiday spirit! Here’s our top three reasons why we love MISS BENNET: CHRISTMAS AT PEMBERLEY.
1. Top 10 most-produced plays of the 2018-2019 Season. This romantic comedy is a Tampa Bay area premiere that offers the perfect holiday experience for family and friends this season. Age Recommendation: 10+
2. Written by two powerhouse female playwrights, Lauren Gunderson and Margot Melcon. Gunderson is the most produced living playwright in America. Her work has been commissioned, produced and developed at companies across the US. Melcon is a theater artist and writer. She spent seven years as the Director of New Play Development at Marin Theatre Company where she dramaturged over 30 productions — including six world premieres.
3. A whimsical and witty sequel to Jane Austen’s PRIDE AND PREJUDICE. MISS BENNET: CHRISTMAS AT PEMBERLEY will be directed by Producing Artistic Director, Stephanie Gularte.
“This new holiday play has so much going for it. Not only is it a wonderful, witty imagining of the continuation of Jane Austen’s PRIDE AND PREJUDICE world, it is also a smart and celebratory romantic Christmas play with dialogue that feels fresh and immediate. Best of all, MISS BENNET features an unlikely but inspiring 19th century female heroine who is discovering how to live a full life on her own terms.”
– Stephanie Gularte, Director
MISS BENNET: CHRISTMAS AT PEMBERLEY runs November 28 through December 30.
