THE WICKHAMS: CHRISTMAS AT PEMBERLEY by Lauren Gunderson and Margot Melcon
In this delightful companion play to Miss Bennet, 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 groomsman, 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. [3 men, 4 women]
