Main Street Theater presents The Wickhams: Christmas at Pemberley
Main Street Theater is presenting holiday favorite Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley via live, staged readings on Zoom.
Regency romance is back for the holidays with Lauren Gunderson and Margot Melcon’s The Wickhams: Christmas at Pemberley - a companion piece to the duo’s delightful Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley - both continuations of Jane Austen’s popular novel, Pride and Prejudice.
As the events of Miss Bennet unfold upstairs at Pemberley, the servants below stairs find themselves in the midst of a different holiday scandal. 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. But before long, everything reaches a boiling point, festivities spiral into chaos, and the truth comes to light.
