The Wickhams: Christmas at Pemberley | Marin Theatre Company


About

This holiday season, MTC is revisiting Regency romance with the World Premiere of Lauren Gunderson and Margot Melcon’s 'The Wickhams: Christmas at Pemberley', directed by Megan Sandberg-Zakian! A companion piece to the duo’s delightful 'Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley'—which MTC produced in 2016!—as both are continuations of Jane Austen’s extremely popular novel, 'Pride and Prejudice'. ABOUT THE PLAY: As the events of 'Miss Bennet' unfold upstairs at Pemberley, the servants below stairs find themselves in the midst of a different holiday scandal in 'The Wickhams'... An unwelcome visitor has stumbled into the hall in the middle of the night—Mr. Darcy’s nemesis and Lydia’s incorrigible husband: Mr. Wickham. The bustling housekeeper Mrs Reynolds, Cassie the resilient new serving girl, and Brian the helplessly romantic groomsman, must each balance their holiday preparations with keeping Wickham confined—for a secreted letter may be the key to bringing him to justice. But before long, old grudges and new misunderstandings reach a boiling point, and as the festivities spiral into chaos, Pemberley’s residents struggle to keep peace without taking sides. Warm and sensational, Gunderson and Melcon’s second Austen adaptation delves into class, privilege, family and forgiveness—and what it means to truly give, in the season of giving. November 15 - December 9
