The Wickhams: Christmas at Pemberley
By Lauren Gunderson and Margot Melcon
Now available to watch online as well!
Regency romance is back with our favorite literary couple and their entertaining relations: Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy! Continuing Jane Austen’s beloved Pride and Prejudice, the below stairs servants at the grand Pemberley estate find themselves in the midst of a 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! Mrs. Reynolds, the bustling housekeeper, 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! An utterly delightful holiday tale.
“Main Street Theater’s The Wickhams: Christmas at Pemberley is a loving extension of the Jane Austen universe.” -Houston Chronicle
“Ultimately, the play, like much of the holiday season, is about belonging: finding the place where one is accepted, understood, and forgiven as well as judging those who reject belonging at all and seek only to justify and pleasure themselves. Pemberley’s secret of happiness is made to lie in its ability to empower the weak and turn away the selfish. In short, it is a play about holiday hope.” —Houston Chronicle/Conroe Courier
